Video Documentation from Open All Hours

Please find below video documentation from the week long 24 hour-a-day event in the loft. The videos have been uploaded in chronological order from midnight on Sunday 28th August (00.00 on Monday 29th August) through to 03.00 on Saturday┬á3rd September (including a special and impromptu after party with Ria Hartley, Rachel Dobbs and Jane Castree via Skype). Sadly not all 24 hours over the five days have been captured on video due to Live stream’s constraints on only recording footage in five hour stints. Whilst the broadcasts are permitted to continue for 24hours a day the recording stops periodically and I on numerous occasions was unable/forgot to re-set the broadcast so it would begin to create the documentation again! woops! Luckily most of these mishaps happened because I was asleep so unless I talk in my sleep and/or there was a ghost in the loft then I don’t think the first three hours of sleeping would have been different to the next four!

Anyway please enjoy dipping in and out of the videos until, in a month’s time (mid October), I have been able to re-watch the videos and add copious notes ­čÖé

***Note added 25th April 2012: Unfortunately eight months after the Instability in Stability performances ended there was a resource failure in the archive control procedures of the second proprietary live streaming provider for the project. This failure resulted in the loss of all videos created through the Instability in Stability Live Stream account, set up on the 15th July 2011. Below (as through each effected daily log post) an image appears as a replacement for the video to indicate when a broadcast took place and to symbolise the inherent problematics of constantly needing to upgrade and migrate software packages for digital archives. Nothing can be done to replace the videos and as such the documentation of the Instability in Stability project is incomplete and somewhat skewed and biased towards the remaining fragments of the Live Stream Chat Room conversations and recorded Archive Appointments. This raises key concerns about archival lacunae, truth and authenticity but equally questions the levels to which we must document performance, how we chose to represent performance and what value we place on the audio/visual record.
