Applause (2010, 104 MB, 1:02 min)

Last week we showed some of Kerry Baldry’s curatorial work,
now here’s one of her own pieces.

Says Kerry:

“Applause is a piece of work made on 16mm film.
Using superimposition and coloured gels Applause has been edited in camera …”

& its a smart & winning piece which punches above its weight.
It looks great & there’s something about the way the visuals work
that really illuminates the sound – the..er..um..applause-ness -
of the applause & this in turn directs us back, carefully, to the visuals.
(& both make us ponder it as a social phenomenon)
The piece made me listen attentively, mindfully, & then look &
listen & think & then do all three again.
