Altogether Now - Film by Lucinda Lyons & Techno by 3sliced


About the piece

Altogether Now Make the art. Animation made using my photography & sculptures in kdenlive featuring an excerpt from 3sliced - his latest techno track - Test Drive 2 Inspired by my grandfather's uncle Albert Alexander, the Labour MP who rallied support for Churchill after Chamberlain's appeasement of Hitler troubled him & he then became the 1st Lord of the Admiralty commanding the navy against the Nazis during World War II. When I moved away from the UK to Catalonia, I found newspapers full of articles about him from the 1930s to 1950s inside an old wooden box in the loft, the same time period as the ones I brought here with me from the Picture Post. I am trying to make sense of the puzzle of the newspapers, so I can show you the way in which the war was documented on either side of the world during this period of time later. Inspired also by the words of Timothy Snyder, who speaks of the making of art as a form of rebellion in itself.
