UK artist Jayne Wilson produces carefully researched films that tread a line between the informative and the playful. Often dominated by a fascination with the inventions of the modern industrial age her films draw on a prevailing interest in archive imagery, collage and a prized collection of engineering manuals. Her films have screened at galleries and festivals including WRO Media Art Biennale (Poland), New Filmmakers, The Anthology Film Archive (New York) Sheffield Fringe and at London Short Film Festival among others.
