In this short video work, fragments of found footage suggest the analysis of bodies in space: humans, technology, architecture and movement, through the process of swelling industrialisation and urbanisation to a point where humanity is redefined by the machinery it has created. In viewing the process of montage we can be seen to occupy multiple spaces through the same screen, fragmented. Similarly, the continuous physical timeline of a twenty-first century individual can be seen as fragmented across multiple forms of information. Where is this information... and who, or what, is processing it?

Darren Banks (UK) incorporates found and made film footage into sculpture and installation to explore ideas about domesticity, defunct technologies, cinema and the unknown. His work questions the perception of sculpture in relation to objects, film and memory.

Removable Media is presented in partnership with Outcasting agency for artist's moving image, curated by Michael Cousin. The partnership is supported by the Arts Council of Wales.

Darren Banks incorporates found and made film footage into sculpture and installation to explore ideas about domesticity, defunct technologies, cinema and the unknown. The work questions the perception of sculpture in relation to objects, film and memory.

Banks is interested in the possibility of film as sculpture. Within his practice sculpture is not just confined to three dimensions, but can exist on and within different platforms and plateaus. As a horror film fanatic he is intrigued by the aesthetic and structural devices used within the genre. Banks’ reworks the formal vocabularies of horror by isolating its tropes, use of montage and architecture.

Banks' work is distributed in conjunction with the Big Brother Bundle on VODO as part of a curatorial partnership with Outcasting agency for artist's moving image, led by Michael Cousin. The partnership is supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
