site-specific projected texts in collaboration with artist Richard Higlett
'The image is not an end in itself: it is a start.' (Mitry)
A series of fictional pages detached from books that might somehow, somewhere, exist, Unbound uses image and text in a site-specific project that explored the complex figurative and literal interconnections between literature, cinema, reader and audience. The pages were projected, one page a week, over two months before all screenings in the cinemas at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, UK. Slowly and silently moving up the screen as the reader's eye moved down the page, the placement of quiet reading in a context usually filed with sound added to the experience and took audiences by surprise.
'It is in the reader that the text comes to life.' (Iser)
Leona's collaboration with Richard Higlett lasted several years, and work was produced under the partnership name l:l. They created work across a range of media using text, sound and visual images, and the work they made together was a hybrid of their respective methodologies.
