Dragline c1950 stumbles across an autonomous machine, and via 1970's structuralist film, returns the logic of digital practice - find, copy, paste, repeat - to its industrial roots.

Commissioned as part of the British Art Show Six (2006), I collaborated with artists Marysia Lewandowska, Eileen Simpson and Ben White to explore public moving image archives in each of the four cities of the exhibition's tour; the project evolved into Screen Tests.
