Sam Austen's  The Hot Glass Tourist’s Dream began as a drawing of a hand on one side of the paper which is pulled through a photocopier to create a mirrored image, then drawn on and re-photocopied until you get repeated images. Using the outmoded photocopier the drawing is like film speed with slight nuances of change, affecting a hallucinogenic image. Austen’s work is mainly moving image and objects.  His analogue films are made up of collaged images of constructed 2d and 3d objects, drawings, words and sounds.  He is interested in the materiality of analogue film as opposed to digital, and drawing being part of the manual process in the moving image.
