George Pal's 1960 sci-fi adventure, rearranged from A to Z by artists Thomson and Craighead.

This new installation piece does very much what it says on the tin. London-based duo Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead have revisited the 1960 movie of H.G.Wells’ novella, and attempted their own form of time travel by chopping up the film into one-word chunks and rearranging them from A to Z. This ‘constrained editing technique’ was inspired by the Oulipo literary movement, and the results are somewhat mind-mangling. Curated by Morgan Quaintance.
