David Sinfield: Moving Images

Runs until 31 August 2019

These moving images works are contemplations on memory and loss at the Pātea Cool Stores and Freezing Works. David’s practice-led research project, Typographical Poetics, is concerned with typographical poetics and the eroding forces of time, materiality and the elements. Using the abandoned Pātea Freezing Works in Taranaki as a site of consideration, it explores how an interface between what is written, what is thought, and what is lost, might operate as a form of typographic film poetry. In so doing, the thesis creatively explores the poetics of palimpsest. Through layers of time and recollection, it fuses photography, film, sound and typographical thought, to ask "What is the potential of spatial-temporal typography to speak for the evocative nature of vacated sites of labour?". Developed through a series of three typographical poems, the project is concerned with subjective response. It questions the potentials of typography as a nuanced and temporal voice that might be employed to speak for the poetics of loss.
