Stop Me If You've Heard It, 2018
Excerpt from Press Release:
The result of ridiculously obsessive research, the works in Dave Dyment’s exhibition Stop Me If You’ve Heard It continue the artist’s interest in how culture is forged, consumed and cannibalized. Seemingly disparate subject matter (Film Noir, the music of the Smiths, the disused Hearn Generating Station, etc.) comes together by way of shared procedural strategies. The exhaustive, algorithmic approach of generative cinema is applied to a variety of media; compiled, remixed and reshuffled to reveal underlying patterns and tangential narratives.
