Previous AA2A Artist

Paul Johnson

Project summary:

The focus gained from doing the AA2A scheme at the University of Worcester was instrumental in my application for an MA to start in September 2008.

This installation called ‘The Never Ending Story’ features ‘The End’/’Fin’ credits from lots of films, both mainstream and Art house, colour and black and white, lasting approximately 15 minutes. This was projected from a wall-mounted monitor. Sound effects were of people coughing, eating crisps, popcorn, opening doors, mobile phones and of a cinema projector: generic cinema noises. The seats in the installation were from the Electric Cinema in Birmingham - Britains oldest independent Cinema, circa 1910. I put lots of popcorn down for the smell. (I still can’t eat it to this day!)
