  1. <font size="2" face="Arial"> Anyone know the name of the video artist who was at the tate modern ages ago. He / She made a short film using utensils and plasticine. Each scene illustrated a function eg pencil sharpener on pencil etc then after a while the functions got mixed up (sharpener on finger I think). Does this ring any bells?!?!</font>

  4. The artist is Jan Svankmajer, and the work is called Dimensions of Dialogue:
