Abstract

To Quote the University's Website: "The University’s 2009 centenary celebrations were rounded off with the launch of a 12-minute video artwork called Centenary Portraits. It was filmed on 20 May in Royal Fort Gardens using an ultra-high-definition camera. The film was made by Terry Flaxton, an award-winning video artist and cinematographer who is an Arts and Humanities Research Council Creative Research Fellow in the Department of Drama: Film, Theatre, Television. The work uses cutting-edge technology but also draws on the traditions of both Victorian photography and 18th-century portraiture. The music is The Chairman Dances by the Pulitzer prize-winning American composer, John Adams". Around 500 were at Court
