There Is No Death

We were delighted that the annual Made in Roath arts festival found us a fantastic location in which to work over a number of days in October and November 2015, Rose St Flea Market in Roath, Cardiff.

The project title came from an old gramophone record we found on our first visit.

On talking to proprietor, Frank during that first visit he told us a little about the history of the place and of some strange occurrences he has encountered there…we were pleased to be able to get his recollections on film on a subsequent visit…

We determined to create new work on site rather than bring existing work, and to explore the glassware (as Frank had brought our attention to unusual instances with glass and glassware at Rose Street), perhaps something would manifest in our recordings…we played the record through a small contact speaker placed in different glasses and on glass surfaces to see what might happen…

Thanks to Frank for having us and to the Made in Roath team for supporting the project.
