featuring Robby Müller and Daragh Reeves (april 2007 - may 2007)

# Martin Shiel - artist video

- ‘Random Selection’ 1996, 00.12’.45
excerpt 00.05’.31’’

Martin Shiel about Random Selection:
".....when I look back on the making of Random - I remember it being quite difficult to shoot despite it looking very simple.
We shot on a big old clunky ArriFlex 16 mm camera so my decisions on which people to follow had to be made very quickly (as we only had a certain amount of footage)
and though I wanted my choices to be as random as possible, I realised even once I’d decided to do away with the usual selection process
– my choices were still influenced by one thing or another – which is an interesting dilemma....."
