Misty Machine 10 / Hard Drive

Synopsis

Misty Machine 10 / Hard Drive simulates an inertial journey through the world wide web. AL and AL ride their search engine in a quest to find bodies stripped and ready for intimacy. In this coded space, erotic contact becomes an onanistic hallucination and the body disappears into a mental universe of mediated masks.

    One of the largest publicly funded award programmes for artists in the UK, the London Artists' Film and Video Awards (LAFVA) scheme offered awards of up to £20,000 for production of artists' moving image work.

    From 2000 to 2008 the scheme supported London-based artists working in the context of contemporary moving image practice - producing work intended for exhibition in galleries, festivals, specialist venues and as site specific installations.
