Not Blacking Out…is similar to the compositions of the Godfather of American experiment, Jonas Mekas. Like his New York master, Richards composes his films from pictures taken at different occasions, but it is a world apart from the achievements of the pioneers of found footage. At times complemented by a soundtrack the flood of flickering images creates a wonderful psychedelic whole.
James Richards was born in Cardiff in 1983, but currently lives and works in London. His work is characterised by the constant modulation of the image the sense of which emerges in an act of constant diffusion. In his work, he attempts to exceed the limits of traditional film and video.
