Combining snippets of real phone conversations with pictures, texts and music, HELLO is a cross between a video diary and a series of postcards sent between two friends. It is a rumination on creativity, melancholia and what it takes to maintain connection at distance.
Every day for 7 days you will receive text messages from Bert & Nasi with a link to a different film. All the films will be available until the end of the week, then once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Please note: you will need an internet-enabled phone to receive our text messages. We will also need your phone number, but we promise we won’t share any of your data with anyone else no matter how much money they offer us we would never do that because that’s a total breach of trust and we just wouldn’t do it – no matter how much money. No way Jose. Not even a million pounds. Facebook and literally everyone has already done it anyway so there would be no point anyway. All personal data will be deleted after the final message has been sent.
Commissioned by The Lowry and MAYK. Supported by Arts Council England. Bert and Nasi are produced by Farnham Maltings.
