Content: We had better use cones as cups is a collaboratively produced film made by attendees of Chelsea College of Arts’ CONDITIONS seminar (a weekly discussion group which, over breakfast, investigates theways art intersects with and is conditioned by its physical and ideological contexts). The film interweaves a mix of staged, incidental and surreptitious footage of the Chelsea studios with a collectively chanted invocation of activities and situations the students will have experienced during their time at the college. Chance correlations between the footage and the chanting echo the tensions between collective and individual, curricular and extracurricular experience peculiar to the art college environment.
