Thesis Title: Towards a Curatorial Notation for Filmmaking: Space as matter and method in the filmic post-production process
The research begins by questioning what happens when a film is edited. In responding to this question, the work forges links between filmic and spatial practices in order to develop a curatorial notation system for filmmaking. The objective, to identify curatorial strategies that can help create, extend and support films - and the worlds they create - within the exhibition environment.
