Recently I’ve been making a series of very still films out of only 1 or 2 different shots. This film is made from a loop of 70 separate still images and is very frenetic. Poppy was obsessed with making gifs and this is my version of a gif. These pictures were shot on Wednesday August 25th, two days before the opening of The London Olympics. We chose to see the torch opposite the road where my late father was born in Winchmore Hill.
Cosmo and I have always been dissidents, and Poppy remains our inspiration and leader.
“My writing is an iron fist in a glove full of vaseline
But dip the fuse in the kerosene
I too become a dissident.”
