Hemi-demi-semi by Richard Couzins, 04|11|02
Couzins presented a unique, short QuickTime movie
loop each day for the 30 days of the project's duration. Click

Hemi-demi-semi refers to the smallest rhythmical
interval in musical notation; the hemi-demi-semi quaver. In this
project, Couzins employed an economy of means using a minimum of
frames in his movies. Objects and maxims animated and looped on
the computer screen, transient collages that were overwritten each
day by a new movie sequence. These works had a raw diaristic quality,
being made near to release; 'hot off the press'.
Couzins lives and work in London. He has exhibited
in the UK, Europe and the USA.
