The Film Footage Missed By A Viewer Through Blinking While Watching The Feature Film ‘Don't Look Now’.

Acclaimed visual artist Elizabeth McAlpine creates her work from chopped-up sections of existing feature films. This piece assembled all of the unseen footage the viewer misses when they are blinking while watching Nicolas Roeg’s ‘Don’t Look Now’. Edited together chronologically, and inspired by the fact that we blink as a resting point when we’ve understood something, McAlpine creates a new narrative; one that is akin to a fast-paced trailer.

Running time: 7min. Rated (15)

This was a FREE exhibition in The Digital Lounge, located on the second floor of the Tyneside Cinema.
