Where the Children Play

Where the Children Play is a printmaking animation. It is a reflection on where sport begins; in the imaginations and playtime of childhood. The children are scratchy drawn print animations overlaid onto footage of Exeter’s Sandy Lane with a soundscape of a 1950s international rugby game. The analogue-style look and ‘old-school’ commentary project the viewer into a dreamscape of carefree action.
