Background - Sixteen Days was funded from two sources, a New Work grant from the Australia Council ($15k) an Asialink Residency in Bangkok ($12k) which afforded the time to post produce the piece. It sits within a practice of video art that uses techniques of animated collage to create tableaus of condensed image poetics. Sixteen Days builds on this tradition adding text and voice over tracks simultaneously to ask what happens to the meaning of the images overlaid with competing and interacting narrative streams. Contribution Bringing ideas of multilinear collage to time based audiovisual media creates new modalities of meaning and widens the expressive scope of these media beyond the conventions of cinematic causality. Significance Sixteen Days was funded through the competitive grants process of both the Australia Council and the Asialink Arts Board. Apart from the EMAF festival (mentioned above) it has been widely exhibited including the Viper Media Arts Festival in Switzerland, Electrofringe in Newcastle and Liquid Architecture in Sydney.
