Mungo Thomson grew up in the seventies, eighties and describes himself as a prototypical member of Generation X: ‘half analogue, half digital’. The dawning of the digital age saw the arrival of the personal computer and the internet, leading to the dematerialisation of many areas of life.
The films in the project present illustrations from the Time-Life Books series, shown in rapid sequence.Thomson’s project imagines these books being scanned by a high-speed robotic book scanner, the type used by universities and tech companies to archive libraries, and proposes such a device as a new kind of filmmaking apparatus.
