The Custard Factory | 12:00

Temporary record shop where you can create your own looping animation and play it on a record deck.

Fancy making your own endless film? Throughout the weekend we’ll be hosting a temporary record shop with a difference at the Custard Factory. This is an ongoing experiment where you can create short looping animations on bespoke discs, and then play them using record decks re-purposed as zoetropes and phenakistoscopes; a natural progression from turntable antics at previous Flatpacks (including Jim LeFevre in 2009, and Sculpture last year). The shopkeeper is Belgian artist Pieterjan Grandry (Crap is Good), who will also be bringing along his wonderfully ingenious animated gif player.
