Description

The CCA ran a series of events and screenings under the heading 'Ripples on the Pond' in 2015. These were organised by the artist Alex Hetherington. I was one of several participants in this event, which also included the filmmakers Suzanne van der Lingen and Mairi Lafferty. My paper was entitled 'slow burn', and discussed films in which burning (fires, candles, cigarettes) is explored through durational aesthetics.
