Free Movies 1978, A self-generating sound and film installation using five Super8 projectors and five reel-to-reel tape recorders. The machines play ten continuous loops: five loops of found film and five loops of found audio recordings. On a near-by wall the films projectors create five postcard-sized rectangles of light showing scratched and clear film with occasional blocks of colour in repetition. In addition to recorded sounds; the clicks and scrapes of the tape and film loops can be heard. The work ran for 5 hours before breaking down.
