Youghal leisure: a time and motion study in three parts

Greyhound Track, Amusement Arcade and Bingo Hall are three pseudo-anthropological filmic documents of leisure activities in the artist's home town. The putative objects of observation are the various systems and structures (physical and otherwise) pertaining to rule based, social leisure establishments.

The camera is dispassionately positioned within the three institutions, in pursuit of the noble dream of objectivity. However, it is not so rigorously deployed as to exclude the possibility of the unhypothesised or poetic datum; the humorous, the idiosyncratic, the human.

Looping video triptych, dimensions variable.
