An arts documentary in development featuring the late artist Eduardo Paolozzi. Narrated by Paolozzi himself, his voice accompanies us through a cinematic landscape of art, architecture, weapons, archive material, visual poems, rubbish, technology and robots. Featuring newly shot footage, archive material, bespoke graphics, visual poetry and a specially commissioned sound score. This is a unique homage and philosophical/visual essay, commenting on our time.
… the paradox of creativity is that it is always preceded or simultaneously accompanied by, an act of destruction, which is both real and symbolic. The very process of collage makes this inevitable. The word collage is inadequate as a description because concept should include; damage, erase, destroy, deface, and transform all parts of a metaphor for the creative act itself. Thus the creative act of collage is a method of taking the world apart and reassembling it in the order that one understands, and that order is ruled by one’s emotions, intuition and intellect. That is Surrealism. And that is perception.
