Last week we were in Berlin for a couple of days – a flying visit in the van to collect a Steenbeck for our film activities and also an opportunity to do a Tagtool session at our friend Schmacke’s place. Some people had seen our performance at the party there last year (when I was drawing over Super 8 found film footage) but this impromptu session was a bit different as we had only the Tagtool with us this time. To show people who arrived at the party early the range of mark-making possibilites of the Tagtool, I began by making a lot of different coloured squiggles, lines and shapes for Dima to animate and then some people who were interested ‘had a go’ at drawing. Unfortunately when we got home I discovered that for some reason my computer hadn’t captured most of our performance, only this short clip – in it I am drawing and Dima is doing the animation.
The sound track is Canto Hondo 2 by Moondog Jr.
