Impressionism and Post-Impressionism
Fluxus and Performance Art
Orson was the first video produced and was initially completed to feature on a TV in Bucket.
Compulsion was the second video completed and the footage was shot in Dorset without an intended project in mind simply to justify a social event.
The song titles Won't Lovers Revolt Now?, Never Odd Or Even, Now Sir, a War is Won, Do Geese See God? and Bar Crab are all palindromes.
(l)Overture is actually a song from an abandoned visual concept album Mark and Bill worked on called Branches.
The video for Don't Bite was improvised: Clint's appearance was entirely due to him randomly turning up for a coffee during filming.
The music linking Pigs and Orson is a section of Canopic Jars: an abstract collection of noise by Bill.
Rip in the Evening reached final cut with Mark wearing a ridiculous costume in a house full of drunks wearing fancy dress at a New Year's Eve party due to the self-imposed deadline to complete the video by the end of 2006.
The 30 second long sequence in Compulsion in which Mark paints a wall actually took over 3 hours.0
Crimson is the only video from Palette that didn't involve using another person in any way during the process. It was entirely improvised and completed in 2 days.
The DVD of Palette features a hidden video based on Conceptual Art.
Tests for Fauvism, Op Art, Letterism and Kinetic Art were carried out.
A video in the style of Gilbert and George was planned but dropped due to the concern that if videos in the style of artists were to be introduced to the collection then the project would never finish.
A consideration was to make "Palatable": a second collection (a sequel?) and pay homage to some of the modern art movements notably missing from Palette.
