Jan Uprichard
Prisoner’s Cinema
is part of an on-going research based body of work under the heading Metonymic Time Machine, attempting to make a time machine that allows you to travel in your mind when exposed to certain smells, colours/light and sounds. The research and process of collecting these sensory elements is an integral part of the work. Each part of the process of building the machine and different prototypes and ways in which it evolves becomes part of An Archive of the Invention.
This manifests itself as a-Series of tests
-Experiments
-Trials
-Just giving it a go
and seeing what happens

 V.s

-Futile,
-Pigheaded,
-Stubborn,
-Determined,
-Obsessive

attempts to create a time machine in whatever form that takes.
The Prisoner’s Cinema film is part of a series of experiments about being in the present without looking backwards or forwards.
It aims to replicate a Prisoner’s Cinema (i.e. the physical phenomenon of seeing colours that aren't really there when we have been enclosed in a dark space for a long time) in the form of a film made from abstracted images of light and colour.
