(above) LBM has been working with a local ceramics studio collective Baltic Clay on raising awareness of their organisation and documenting their different practices and events. Lately we have been working on their most recent event at the Liverpool Light Night titled 'Clay Lab'. The event lasted throughout the whole of Light Night. Baltic Clay encouraged anyone to drop into their studios for this family friendly event. They asked the public to participate in a changing clay sculpture. After receiving 100 bags of clay, the public were asked to shape, mould and sculpt the mound into whatever they wanted. LBM was on hand to document this non permanent creation throughout each stage through video documentation, Vox pop interviews, photography and time-lapse.
(above) The Invisible City was a unique cinematic event staged in St Helens. LBM was on hand to document the main event. A collaboration with Abandon Normal Devices (AND) and Alexandra Park (St Helens) Management Limited, the former Pilkington Glass headquarters. Featuring the granddaddy of surveillance films Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window. This short film acts as an archive to the installation, delivery and wrap up of the large outdoor screen operation. The main event consisted of a film programme, with a choice of viewing options including ‘drive-in’ and ‘viewing gallery’; and quasi-fictional tours of the Pilkington HQ, which flattened distinctions between famous and forgotten, public and private spaces in the building. The glass fronted office complex was used as a backdrop to ask questions related to transparency and invisibility in our society today.
