Sean Clark's Blog
I love finding old hard drives, you never know what you are going to find! On an old 12Gb USB drive I found a few gems. There were a whole bundle of pictures from a Shamen show at The Forum in 1995 plus some pictures from a Zion Train show in the early 2000s. I also found some good video material. There were some Zion Train videos from Glastonbury 2000, a Love Grocer video from 2003 and some video footage from the Fragments of Identity installation in 2003.
I've uploaded a whole bunch of articles and cover scans from my magazine work in the mid-1990s. It includes articles about The Shamen, William Latham, Virtual Reality, art on the net, mobile Internet, education and more. In most cases these topics are still things I've remained interested and it's fun to see just how far things have come on over the years - or not in some cases.
You can find the scans at:
In the late 1990s I created a Web site for dub band Zion Train who were on China Records. "WobblyWeb" was filled with links to informative and bizarre sites selected by the band together with odd facts and general strangeness. Cuttlefish Multimedia still runs WobblyWeb for the current band - although it is now much more focused on dub music! The screen-grabs on this page were recovered from the archive.org "waybackmachine".
After a lucky find on an old hard disk I have been able to re-upload a complete version of Nemeton - The Shamen's Web site. I've given the site a bit of a tidy in order to remove broken links, but it is pretty much as it was when The Shamen split in 1999.
'Flow' was and installation by Geoff Groadway and Sean Clark which took place at the Q Gallery in Derby in 2000. It explored elements of personal change and transformation through a continued interest in the creative possibilities of the oral-history document and experimental moving image and sound techniques. A record of the installation is now available.
I've uploaded an archive of pictures taken at the Solar Eclipse festival near Lusaka in Zambia in 2001. I took them while touring with Zion Train.
One more piece of work from the dusty hard-drive of my old iMac. 'Persistence of Vision' was an exhibition I did about Victorian optical toys. On the Web site there is an interactive version of a Phenakistiscope.
I've found a copy of the Web site that I did to support the 'Birmingham Frequencies' CD-ROM that came with the Higher Intelligence Agency / Biosphere album of the same name. To quote the introduction text:
"Birmingham frequencies is a record of an event which took place in Oct '97, within the sublime circular rhythms of Birmingham's modern architectural classic - The Rotunda. the second best loved structure in Birmingham after King Kong."
It was a great event to be involved in and I still think the music and multimedia work stands up to this day.
