'Electrophase' is a video-graphic expansion of Mark Bain's 'machine environment' installation 'Interphase'. Bain's computer-manipulated images of this mechanical sculpture - which, like the tape, comes across as the creation of a contemporary and lyrical constructivist - are combined with differing, machine-like sounds. The pulsating image is dynamic, and constantly changing in colour and tempo. The sound, which appears to have been injected directly into the electronic, abstracted images, both influences and directs the image, and vice-versa.
