Event Details

Part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2013, Continuum is an immersive, visceral experience featuring work by visual artist Catherine Street, poet JL Williams and composer improvisers Martin Parker and Owen Green.

Continuum screening

The film Continuum derives its intense sound and images from the exhausted body of the artist. She is shown engaged in a sensual and bodily encounter, not only with the physical world but also with the conceptual world of mathematical ideas.  She probes her physical limits, and at the same moment gives voice to a text that seems to explore those limits in cool theoretical terms. Live readings by Street and Williams weave hallucinatory narratives that allude to the experiential world of human perception alongside a theoretical conception of time and space. William’s rich, emotive delivery is contrasted with Street’s precise voice. Taking cues from the intense audio of the film, Green and Parker’s live performances fill the space with sound that builds in intensity over time. On engaging with this sensory experience and the sometimes disturbing impressions evoked by the performances, the audience is liable to feel a strong emotional response, perhaps of unease, fascination or exhilaration.

Continuum reading

The film, Continuum, was shot by filmmakers Ben Ewart-Dean and Daniel Warren, with sound by Owen Green and performance by Catherine Street and Dmitry Ser. Continuum was initially created as part of an Artist Commission for the Human Race exhibition and associated events programme in 2012. Human Race was funded by Legacy Trust UK and Creative Scotland. The event was first presented with support from Generator Projects, Dundee.
