8mm, 16mm, 35mm, Go!

"All the things I am attracted to are just about to disappear."

Tacita Dean said that in an interview published in the Oct 31 issue of The New Yorker this year. She's an artist who works primarily with 16mm film and recently expanded into 35mm for "FILM", an exhibition at the Tate.

We've never seen any of Dean's work firsthand, but The New Yorker interview compelled us to read more about her. [Read an excerpt here -- ed.]  And should the opportunity arise, we'll be there to watch whatever she's filmed.

Here's a YouTube film about her Tate installation, narrated by the artist.
