The Tortoise and the Hare

This piece attempts (and knowingly fails) to reconcile television footage on video - a car and on-foot cops and robbers chase from "The Sweeny" circa1977 with Aesops fable of the Tortoise and the Hare re-enacted by Alison Winckle (the walking tortoise), myself (the running hare) filmed chasing round a circle by Keith Frake in Bow Cemetry. The screening/performance involved an 8mm back projection of the filmed action with DC running on the spot in front of it with the video of the car chase on a monitor to one side. D.C.
