Washi MM, Lynn Loo, 2017
15 mins. Performance for 3x 16mm projectors with optical sound.
Washi MM is a hand-made film that uses Japanese Washi paper (made from the bark of mulberry trees) adhered to the filmstrip. The imagery also produces the soundtrack mixed live from the three projectors.

Japan 2016 / UK 1975, 20+ mins
Live performance with video projector, super 8 projector, hand-made screens, paint.
Sherwin's 1975 performance Paper Landscape is a live interaction with his on-screen presence, filmed on super 8mm in Epping, London. Forty years later he has re-worked the idea for digital video and sound - recorded in the rice fields of Itoshima, Japan.
