As well as screening some of the raw 16mm hand-painted footage and a section of the digitised 16 hour film (with edited soundtrack), Chris and Jo will be talking about the project in relation to their own filmmaking practice and ideas relevant to the project, including collaboration, participation and a discussion around using film in a contemporary context.

A quick round up of events coming up in February...

Following our successful screening and workshop event at the IKON Gallery we will be running a similar event at Firstsite in Colchester on Saturday 18th February. This brand new building as a centre for contemporary visual art opened in September last year so we are thrilled to be bringing Unravel to Essex for the first time.  Chris and Maria are running the workshop from 11am - 1pm and 2pm-4pm with a screening at 4pm, our edited highlights will also be playing in a seperate gallery space throughout the day.

Chris will also be running an Unravel event on Wednesday 15th February in Ambleside at the Kelsick Centre from 2.30pm - 5.30pm.  This is a special workshop made in conjunction with work Chris is developing for an exciting group show in late March at the Armitt Gallery, Museum and Library  in Ambleside co-curated by Russell Mills of which more details will be released soon.

Chris and Jo will be in discussion on Unravel in the evening of Wednesday 22nd of February at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds as part of the Peripherique series of artists' talks. We will be showcasing the various formats and processes of the project alongside our own perspectives on using analogue film in the digital age. The event is free and runs from 6pm - 8pm. Don't forget to check out OKO's own blog for Mark and Jo's latest activities.

Finally(!) our friend Sam Meech is running a direct film workshop on Saturday 11th February at St Helen's Library in Liverpool from 11- 3 as well as an iMovie workshop in the iHub. Chris might be joining in if he can make it over but it should be a great event regardless. 
Wrap up warm everyone!
