The 3 minute silent animation a space odyssey omit is made from a single celluloid frame gleaned from the 'cutting room floor' of Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film '2001: A Space Odyssey'. The frame was destined to be used as a special effects shot in the Stargate sequence but never made it into the final film. Kubrick usually destroyed all unused footage from his films but this one frame survived and so this rendition gives a glimpse to what was and could have been.
It was installed as a dual projector installation as my final piece at Wimbledon MA Show 2011. In conjunction with this animation, there is a limited edition giclee print.
It was first screened at Wimbledon’s HMV Curzon Cinema as part of the Moving Image South series with Emily Richardson in June 2011 & also at CCW Salon Chisenhale Gallery, London in September 2011 and in A New History at Grey Area in Paris in December 2011.
