407 HOURS OF ACTUAL WORK
The folder used to collate data for the masterpiece and upon which Elliott scribbled the hours he worked. Note final figure 407 hours at centre left. Also observe annotation at right "239 hrs and I hate it!". Superchromatic would be the last of the artist's 'Symphonies For The Camera'. Although 'The Inevitability Of Circumstance' is dated later, it was shot before 'Superchromatic', the post production and printing just ran into 1987. But Superchromatic was the last 'Symphony' created. A magnificent light sculpture. Elliott writes, concluding his essay, '..... one thing is absolutely written in stone. I shall never venture down this creative High Road ever again - not in this lifetime anyway." He never has.
