Natural History Museum talk at 'Unruly Creatures' symposium, 2011
"Using examples from his screen-based work and research, Phillip Warnell discusses ideas on the animal (and human) body, at the point where an additional cinematic or phenomenological element has established a ‘projection of animality’. From exaggeration and disappearance through strangeness, displacement or mechanical means, light emitting organs and privilege of speed, the stretching and shape shifting of bodily formats and their dimensionality anticipates science and fiction melding into an emergent, shared space of hybridity, symbiosis and transfiguration.
