Seeing extends out through the camera and memory is gathered mechanically by hand. Walking With Head Down by Callan Skimin is a work in ten chapters exploring the bond between camera and self. Dreams, memory and language passing through the one aperture; every day the little cinema.
William Hart-Smith, 1972
I cannot resist now and then being born
into the dark world of Theatre.
I like to settle down in my seat
and watch event succeed event
on a two-dimensional sheet.
I like to let myself identify
with all the happenings that sequence by
and then get up and die into the Street.
