Abstract

The UK referendum on the decision to leave the EU was a very contentious event. It revealed some very significant divisions in the population of the United Kingdom. Not least was the division between age. Where the majority of young people voted to remain, an older generation largely voted to leave. Consequently, the outcome of the referendum was very much influenced by people for whom a future beyond the borders of the UK was irrelevant.

The work uses continental domestic film media from the 1950s, the period during which the foundations for a supranational state of European countries was first being formed. The cine medium acts as the institutional and social structure

The images of young people, made using continental domestic cine equipment from the 1950s, are projected onto and inside the wooden panels of polling booths to impose their silent presence on the vehicle

The work has been installed using eight 8mm cine projectors, each throwing footage from a loop of film of a young person speaking of their response to the referendum onto the external and internal surfaces of two old-fashioned wooden polling booths. The booths act as a physical manifestation of the

act of voting. As the viewer approaches the booths they are confronted with the images of young people, speaking but rendered silent by the medium used to represent them

Being a silent medium, their voices cannot be heard.
