House drape for movie

The Magpie’s evolving film needed something more adventurous than birds on the roof of the house and the opening and closing of doors and shutters. Once the fabric had found a core place within the cabinet and also to supply suitable lengths for making banners, based on the Chinese banner waving technique encountered in the Purple Bamboo Park in Beijing, another idea came to mind. Those same fabrics could pour from a top floor window of the house and this filmed sequence would become the final thematic link in the video. Days were running out if the film was to be included in the first version of the installation, so an overcast snowy morning held enough light to make this happen.
