SCREENING: Andrew Norman Wilson: KODAK & other works
19:00 - 21:00 at The Regent Street Cinema, 309 Regent St, London W1B 2UW
Los Angeles based artist Andrew Norman Wilson, whose work currently features in All I Know Is What’s On The Internet, presents his most recent video work KODAK alongside other films and a discussion.
Co-written by James N. Kienitz Wilkins, KODAK imagines a dialogue between a blind, mentally unstable former film technician and the spectral voice of George Eastman, recordings of whom play out over a procession of photographs, home video footage, vintage Kodak ads, and animations. A semi-biographical video inspired by his father’s career in Kodak’s photo processing labs, Wilson’s narrative of photochemical science entwines multiple perspectives and personas.
A short essay about KODAK by Nick Irvin is available here.
The event also features Wilson’s 2011 short Workers Leaving the GooglePlex, documenting the mysterious yellow badged “ScanOps” Google workers in Silicon Valley, which simultaneously led to his own dismissal from the company. The reference to the Lumière Brother’s 1895 film Workers Leaving the Factory situates the video within both the history of Regent Street Cinema and motion pictures more broadly.
