    1942 was the year allocated to Debra Fear to represent. It has a mono soundtrack as befits a radio voice of that time.

    “For old time’s sake Forsake
    A kiss is just a kiss Kiss
    Never out of date
    Out never
    Each and all join in the march of death
    Join the march each
    Now this is not the end
    Now this end”

    The omnipresent shadow of World War Two and Anne Frank wrote in her diary ‘Countless friends and acquaintances have gone to a terrible fate’ and so her family go into hiding. Eric Ravilious, a RCA alumnus and war artist goes missing presumed dead whilst observing a sea rescue mission off Iceland. This is the year 1942.

    Motion pictures include classics like ‘Casablanca’ the famous song played by Sam -‘As time goes by’ - and ‘Holiday Inn’ when ‘White Christmas’ is sung first on film by Bing Crosby. The animation ‘Bambi’ premieres and, I in the 1960s, a young child was taken out of the cinema howling with shock when his mother got shot. In Great Britain Winston Churchill gives a speech ‘’Now this is not the end…’. On radio ‘Desert Island Discs’ – still aired today- started with its famous intro music and holds the following years together.

    Through all of this the number ‘42’ resonates like some numbers do, and further along the century it is the backbone of Douglas Adam’s radio series, then TV and later a Hollywood film ‘Life, the universe and everything’.

    Somehow part of its script fits back to 1942 in textual echoes for me so I intertwined and put them into time’s distorting filter.

    Those words mutate in arrangement and change, amplifying context and meaning. One of the three visuals is the battle that never was in Los Angeles, USA.

    So long ago yet the thread of continuity is us: for all our truths, failings and humanity. Show less
