Semiconductor, Some Of Us Will Have Become

Time, a Hesitant  Smile begins this Thursday 5 February at 5.30pm at VUE Cinema Swansea. There is chance to hear curators Jacqui Davies and Joseph Constable in conversation and then the film screenings begin at 6pm. The first programme of Time, a Hesitant Smile contains multiple channels of broadcast and (mis)communication. Temporal stability is thrown into question as voices and images appear through windows – the Internet browser, the television screen or the satellite transmission – conveying enigmatic messages from the past and the future. The programme is below:

 Haroon Mirza, This content was transmitted to this date in 1987, 2013. 3min

James Richards, The Misty Suite, 2009. 7min

Louis Henderson, All That Is Solid, 2014. 15min

Laida Lertxundi, Cry When It Happens, 2014. 14min

John Latham, Erth, 1971. 25min

There are two further film programmes to follow at 6.30pm on Thursday 12 February and Thursday 19 February.

Everyone welcome, and this event is free.
