In Josh Begley’s film, Best of Luck with the Wall (2016), a comment on the proposed border wall between the US and Mexico by American President Donald Trump, Begley states:

What would it mean to try to ‘see’ the entire south-west border at once? To travel the whole 1,954 miles in, say, six minutes?…
According to Google Maps, it would take 34 hours to drive its entire length.

We wondered, why six minutes? Why should this heavily politicised place, much of which is inhabited and sees a million people officially cross the border every day, be temporally reduced and become the visual equivalent of what Begley terms is “a place abstracted into a sound bite”?

Employing the same tools and processes as the original, this film addresses the issue by providing a slowed-down 34-hour variant. The result is a video that traverses the landscape simulating the experience of travelling the length of the wall as if travelling at the speed of a car. The scale of the proposed construction is emphasised and each place that it will pass through can be seen and identified. The video is accompanied by the original soundtrack torturously stretched to the point of being noise and as a result uncomfortable to listen at length, reminding the viewer of the film’s disturbing subject matter.

On my way to Plymouth, I tried to domesticate my English native speaker phone. Its system transformed my intentions into something new. Since then, I have lost the precise memory of what I was saying in French. Am I still interested in untreated data? Is it even possible to undo the process, to decipher back the code? Is it even tempting?



Ty-why work in progress sept 2014

Ty is a short movie shoot and edited in September 2014 in Cardiff. The sound was recorded in October and November in Southampton.

Thanks to RM & GL for their feedback and support.

Cardiff lights.

From red to green to red to…

Read the conditions carefully.

At the very-almost-end of the land,
there was a striped house,
open to the pitching sky.
It was supposed to be bright
but instead
has been called light.

I tried
to slowly pronounce
« Shropshire »
many times.
Then I tried to write it.
I was wrong.
Every times.
I’m used to struggle with words,
with sounds.
Now, I’m just
trying to play with them.

Permutation & Combination

Permutation & Combination, a collaborative exhibition by Frédérique Santune ( and Garrett Lynch (, showcases a selection of works created between 2005 and 2009 which explores the potential of video as a material/substance shaped by the artists. Works in the exhibition are more than a linear time-based medium captured through the lens of a camera. They are spaces of process; for the artists to cut up, fold and manipulate; for the systems of playback to control and change live.

Dates: 21st to 31st January (Vernissage Thursday 24th of January 6 – 8pm)
Opening times: 10am – 4pm
Location: Queens Arcade, Queen Street, Cardiff, CF10 2BY.
