THE UNKNOW JOURNEY - OH GOD, HOW COULD YOU FORGET TO BRING THE MAP!?

materialize transient material

Sam Burford creates objects and films that explore the temporal and transformative nature of meaning and language. Burford’s work is an investigation into how cinematic language affects the process of watching images and the way our eyes read different colour and light. By adapting populist media Burford seeks to alter the viewers engagement and perception of this material.

He has designed and built a machine using an old record player and a camera to capture the light that emanates from a screen.

is a way of generating temporal maps that notionally express a relation of time, memory and cinema. (…) My work is centred about trying to take the time out of cinematic material. Sam Burford

Essentially I am interested in collecting and organising information, to materialize transient material into a mode where it can be contemplated much in the same way that one encounters a painting

This practice came about through an instinctive desire to merge the transient nature of cinema (technic) with the traditions of painting, to return to the notion of discerning rather than experiencing
