Interval and Instance: Time and focus in the films of Eric Lucey
Audiovisual composer Jules Rawlinson presents a new work for live cinema that remixes archival material from pioneering scientific filmmaker Eric Lucey, adding an electronic score and sound design that reflects on and responds to Lucey’s studies. Lucey established a Research Film Unit in 1950 at the University of Edinburgh. His work has recently resurfaced and is gaining attention in both the academic and art worlds. One defining feature of Lucey's filmmaking was his manipulation of speed, motion and scale using a variety of techniques, most famously time-lapse and microphotography.
