The work re-imagines the opening title sequence of Francois Truffaud’s Farenheit 451 which was filmed in the nearby Pinewood Studios. The Television aerials of the original have been replaced by satellite dishes which, like in the original film, are each filtered by colours from the ROYBGIV colour spectrum.

The narrated titles and Bernard Herman’s original sound score have been replaced with sound generated by the computer program The vOICe. The vOICe was developed to enable the blind to ‘see’ through image-to-sound renderings. Images are converted into sound by scanning them from left to right while associating elevation with pitch and brightness with loudness.
