Until this show I wasn't actually a video artist.  I like to see interest, beauty or intrigue in normal every day objects.   Normally I work with found/upcycled materials and with a 'make do with what I can get' attitude.  Allowing the materials to contribute to the path the work takes.  I work in which ever mediums are relevant at the time, I’m a photographer, sculptor, painter and builder in general.

I had recently bought a bike. I emptied the room and set up some cameras. I opened a can of juice. I was a bit fed up; nothing that I had done in the last week or so had really led anywhere. 

 

Ah wiz jist gaun’ roon’ in circles.

 

It was only later that I realised this was the first act in a new body of work. Six months later, I cycled to the Netherlands.   

I'll post it on fb too

Aline Helmcke 

Aline Helmcke - showing her film called stillness.

I use animation as a way to capture the process of drawing. Therefore my films are time based drawings rather than drawn animations, and my approach is conceptual rather than narrative. An entitiy I cannot grasp on a rational level is being made accessible by a certain strategy of depicting it.
