using art installations, soundscapes, spoken word, discussions, talks, screenings, and dance,  ‘tapescape catford: the intervention i’ was the first part of the intervention   taking over a disused blockbuster videostore, ransacked in the 2011 london riots, the event questioned the impact video has made on all our lives, how it affected our behaviour and the huge environmental cost of our short lived innovations    we held a 'video amnesty' allowing london borough of lewisham residents to bring in old videocassettes to be returned to the shelves for one last time before heading off to be completely recycled and re-emerge as something new





one of the artworks that became a particular talking point was ‘deluge’ by paul halliday   with financial help of lewisham council and recycle company repic this artwork was developed to form the deluge  ​over five weeks   the deluge slowly grew fascinating those who passed the 30 metres of windows



the work ended with a short series of academic talks with goldsmiths [click], over 2000 videocassettes, almost a tonne, being recycled by ems in bristol, and lewisham council initiating a videocassette recycling scheme for all its 265,000 residents
