Made from piles of luscious colour gels, "Peacock Lee" was cut, stuck and manipulated into 16mm film. A fiddly effort to make a colour explosion collage with a totally handmade technique making cameras and the darkroom redundant.
The film is cut to the soundtrack of 'Weapons Destruction' by Warm Digits (UK).
