Reading about the ‘train effect’ in early cinema, the architectural space of the virtual screen and psychical cinema, I was reminded of the work of Savinder Bual’s which I saw in the 2011 New Contemporaries exhibition. The video below, ‘Train’, is made with a single photographic image.

Exploring the still and moving image and the cinematic space, the low fi, and playing with filmic techniques, Bual’s work  references the precinematic whilst drawing upon the digital.
