Nic Kemp's two screen sound and video installation is completed. It had a test run in September and was positively received.
Memory Run the first part of a triptych of installations exploring the idea of how the perception of memory changes over time within a sequence of a seemingly everyday situation.
Set in a suburban London street, a woman is running away from her problems. In doing so she triggers a series of interrelated events. Through the use of 5.1 surround sound design and carefully edited video, the installation immerses the audience in an emotional environment and challenges their perception of memory.
(A dog barks) is looking for prime spaces for Memory Run to be experienced by the public.

Nic Kemp completes principle photography on Memory Run
Principle photography for Memory Run was completed on Saturday 14th July.
The day was a full success aided by good weather, a great team and helpful locals.
Set in a suburban London street, Memory Run focuses on a woman fleeing from an ambiguous threat. In doing so she triggers a series of interconnected events.
Shooting on a Panasonic HVX200 DOP, Colin Elves, filmed the main running sequences at variable frame rates with a steady cam and dolly. The final installation will combine the application of high definition video, multiple projections and surround sound. Through this use of sound and video the installation will immerse the audience in an emotional environment and challenge their perception of memory.
This is the first part of a triptych of installations exploring the nature of memory and how it evolves over time.
Nic is now in postproduction and is set for a premier show at Hertfordshire Open Studios in September 2007.
If you would like more information or are interested in showing the installation in a gallery or festival then please contact email@example.com
