Kipple Night... (VHS Art for the Digital Age)

Kipple: A term borrowed from Phillip K Dick referring to the detritus of modern living that will one day overwhelm us.

"Kipple drives out nonkipple... No one can win against kipple, except temporarily and maybe in one spot... the entire universe is moving toward a final state of total, absolute kippleization." - Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.

Eagle & Feather: Julian Butler, a.k.a Eagle, and Stephen Earl Rogers, a.k.a Feather. Stephen is an artist working mainly as a painter. He is held in permanent collections in the UK and United States and has exhibited many times at the National Portrait Gallery. Julian is a film-maker and television producer. His work has appeared on BBC 2, Channel 4 and at the Edinburgh, London and Cannes film festivals.

Collaboratively, Eagle & Feather have been putting their own interpretation on the term kipple for a number of years. Through regular visits to charity shops, public libraries and jumble sales they have amassed a collection of absurdly peripheral and esoteric videotapes, selected for their distinct peculiarity.

Theirs is an attempt at alchemy, taking base material and transforming it, by various means editing, manipulating, combining and reducing - into something that is imbued with new qualities - humour, drama, pathos and poetry. Turning kipple into non-kipple, at least temporarily.
