Christmas Card

Commissioned for Illuminate Bristol, the films were projected onto the inside of a shop window in the evening. From the outside it looked like someone was letting off fireworks inside.

To help contextualize the films, this alphabetical poem was made from words taken off BBC News website 3rd December 2010.

Christmas 2010.

Abandoned Afghanistan allowance appeal,
Blizzard bribes Britain,
Cancer,carbon chaos China closure councils crippling criticised cuts cuts,
Dead debt delays devolved dies disruption drug trials,
Engagement expenses,
Fail fake fees festive Fifa fresh fraud funds freed frozen frustrated,
Hactivists Healthier huge,
Light leak Nuclear nation ,
Suicide snow snowbound snowstorm stolen students,
Unemployment, unemployment,
Wikileaks, windchill world.
