BAAAD Films.

We invite you to our premier of student films made by our fellow students this year. Disappear into a dystopian future with Abi’s work, into the life of Tommy Cooper with Adam’s work if only for a couple of minutes.

In the light of moving the celebration of our work online, we wanted to make sure to celebrate and premier our student films. Each film has been made in our final year at BCU as part of our final projects. 

Disconnect, 2020.

Dystopian Film, 2020.

Abigail Loquellano.

A “post-apocalyptic world”, set in the future. Where design is used as a means of facing
huge challenges such as over population, water shortages, air pollution and the drastic rich
and poor divide on a global scale. Referencing life, Abi documents how people use space in both urban and rural locations, and utilises this to build the narrative in her work through
photography and illustrations.

A Bag Of Mountain, 2020.

Bing Bing Duan.

Seven Seconds, 2020.

Bing Bing Duan.

It is a first vision film that tells a story in the 2190s, a technique of replaying the memory for
the investigation has been launched. The protagonist’s memory has been replaced with others and the dark side of this new technique is revealed. I aim to achieve the interaction
among the installation, film and audience. Therefore, the exhibition place designed as a
nature cinema with a forest and sea view and special sound is used to create the atmosphere.

The Temporary Image, 2020.

Louise Bache.

A large part of Louises practice is dedicated to learning about the changes happening around us in the digital world. She is fascinated by the constant influx of information supplied to us
by the eternal scroll or swipe. How should we value our personal information; what really matters to us? Data is bought, shared, authorised, stolen, breached, hacked, infiltrated, etc –
therefore the things we post no longer belong to us, nor does the information they contain.

Happy, 2020.

Wavy, 2020.

Gone, 2020.

Lara Hayes.

Lara Hayes is a visual artist who works mainly with video making and creating visuals set in a specific timeline with music emphasising the mood and feelings of the narrative. She also works with creating images using polaroid camera, screen and the use of light moving through images of nature. Her work focuses on evoking a sense of nostalgia in them in which she reuses familiar visual images and places them into new conceptually layered formats, offering a different perspective on the dynamics of subject matter. Lara works with found footage which she combines into compilation films; her work has more evocative moods and impressions rather than any distinct narrative, creating a spectatorial experience for the viewer.

Social media has changed the way in which artists can engage with their audience. It offers global connectivity and the means to reach new viewers effortlessly. 

Hashtags provide online support and structures for artists to gain visibility, grow networks, and potentially create sales. They are widely and instantly recognisable and have started to infiltrate real-world spaces, which is why I have used them as a symbol of online behaviour.

The melting of the wax explores permanence in relation to online material and the passing of time through mindless scrolling. Despite changing state, once melted the wax remains are still present and available to be repurposed, just as images can be reposted and used for other means.

Adam is a multidisciplinary artist, currently interested in the boundaries of appropriation – how existing works can be owned, fragmented and repurposed to form a new narrative.
