For the next online event in the ONE ARTIST | ONE WORK series, Mark Lyken will discuss his work, 1300 SHOTS (2020).
1300 SHOTS takes the form of a single-take portrait film that returns two ex-patrons of Dundee cinema ‘The Steps’ to their favourite seats, 20 years after the cinema was decommissioned, to observe them watching one last film.
Supported by Creative Scotland, University of St Andrews Department of Film Studies, Live Borders, Dumfries & Galloway Council, Dundee Local History Centre and Leisure & Culture Dundee.
ONE ARTIST | ONE WORK is a series of online events established in response to the first lockdown in March 2020. Focusing closely on a single work, these generous discussions provided an opportunity for an artist based in Scotland to present a recent work and talk through how the work came into being. These events have since developed into a more substantial part of our programme, and now include a month-long online screening and a specially commissioned written response that will be published on the LUX Scotland website. The series now provides an opportunity to think more deeply about the work and provide a record of the discussion events.
How it works
Our online events will take place on Zoom. The event will be live transcribed using otter.ai live transcription. We will also use the chat space to post questions /comments being raised by the guest artist so they can be referred back to.
We ask that all participants are respectful and listen to the facilitators and other participants. An attendee list will be circulated to all participants in advance of each event. At the beginning of events we will introduce the guest artist and invite participants to briefly introduce themselves and their reason for joining.
During the event discussion, we ask that one person speaks at a time and that you type ‘hi’ in the chat to indicate you want to contribute. A member of the LUX Scotland team will keep a track of who wishes to contribute and will direct the conversation to you. You may also wish to use the chat space to type your question or comment, should this be preferable for you. We ask that you keep your microphones on mute until you are going to speak to ensure everyone can hear clearly. We invite you to have your cameras on, where possible, as this maintains a feeling of being together in the space.
LUX Scotland is dedicated to providing a welcoming online environment for everyone, regardless of gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion or belief. Participants who do not adhere to this code of conduct and the participation guidelines will be asked to leave the event.

ONE WORK is a series of online events that focus closely on a single work. These generous discussions provide an opportunity for an artist to present a recent work and talk through how the work came into being. Each work is available as a month-long online screening, followed by a specially commissioned written response that serves as documentation of both the work and the discussion.
