Encyclopaedia Anatomica was started in 2002.
Alone with a Super 8 camera, cardboard, clay, an inkjet printer and a glue gun, I set out to create a future relic tale of macabre transgenic machines, hybrids and organisms. Heavily influenced by the Brothers Quay….
At the time (and actually still to this day) I know nothing of lighting so, sadly the Super 8 footage was dark. Eventually I had the film converted to a digital file in hopes of continuation, and better lighting!!
Meanwhile, please view the early entries into the Encyclopaedia.
Field recordings: Dupont station, Toronto. Random machine and vehicle sounds, Filters, heart beat created digitally.
