Stuart Layton \ The Act of the Spartan Boy

The Act of the Spartan Boy is a moving image installation that combines both found appropriated and new footage, that explores the small towns and villages that make up part of the West Midlands called the Black Country. The video piece examines notions of memory and aims to operate not as document but rather as a transient, fragmented vision, free and ephemeral as the volatility of a memory itself - something that interests me in regards to my installation. The thin line between what is real and what is fiction Lines between fact and fiction are obscured by way of the broken narratives that are entwine within the fabric of the imagery.
