Curated by Duncan White and Steven Ball Animated text is commonplace in everyday contemporary media, but artists have been experimenting with the interface of word, language, image and movement in film and video for decades through formal exploration.à‚  This programme of works by historically significant, established and emerging contemporary artists encompasses a range of approaches to mobilising the visual, semantic and linguistic with puns, palindromes and performance; referencing literature, philosophy, poetry, and media. The programme is part of ‘Light Writing' an event based research project into the relationship between word and image in experimental film and video led by Dr Duncan White based at British Artists' Film and Video Study Collection, Central St Martins College of Art and Design.
