Stephanie Bolt & Eric Lesdema present 'Blue Straggler' a film shot in Bognor, featuring Bognor-ites, for the Brighton-based band Electralane.. Bolt is currently exhibiting at Angel Row Gallery and co-ordinating a series of private views in front rooms as part of a yota residency Home Demonstration. Lesdema was awarded the UN Nikon prize for photography in 1998 and a recent LED text work is currently touring the UK. Bolt and Lesdema's film 30,000 acres was screened at the BBC Short Film Festival (London) and Video Archaeology (Sofia, Bulgaria).

Subc_t + Mufcoli present ‘Bus Stop’; a morbid and malevolent eye surveys ordinary activity. So far this year, Subc_t + Mufcoli have debuted three video works: ‘Austin Insomnia’ (at ‘Free Love’, a Valentine’s Day event organised by the London Musician’s Collective); ‘iscream’; and ‘Bus Stop’. Other performances have included an electronic improvisation, broadcast to a small array of transistor radios in the Bonnington Centre, Vauxhall (at the behest of the Bohman Brothers). Subc_t + Mufcoli are also protagonists in the interdisciplinary journal, ‘Inventory’, and underground cinema group, ‘My Eyes...My Eyes’: It’s futile, I know, but half of what we do is about avoiding work, rejecting a world of stupid compliance and subjugation....

Adam Schrivner presents ‘The Persistent Attempt to Exist’ - a journey simultaneously real and metaphorical, a headless quest for a sovereign atheology. Scrivener’s most recent activities have included participating in the exhibitions Century City at Tate Modern and Pandaemonium at the Lux Centre (2001). He rarely exhibits any work as an individual artist, the last time being the exhibition Limit Less at Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna (1999).

The film ‘Midwatch’ by Mark Aerial Waller depicts a battle of wills in the galley a ship returning from the first British nuclear test, shot in infra-red and starring Steve Evets and Mark E. Smith of The Fall. Waller is a British poet and film-maker, whose work is based on a narrative often emerging in enigmatic circumstances, where the protagonists engage in a search for meaning. Whether in the canteens of nuclear factories or in the galley of a warship, the actors are debating with gravity and humour in vertiginous dialogues and disconcerting intimacy. Exhibited at Salon-3, London (2000), with solo shows at Konstmuseum Uppsala, Sweden (2000) and En Cours, Paris (2001). Waller is presently working on a feature-length psychedelic thriller, ‘Save Our Souls’.
