More Light

4:55 minutes, DV colour stereo, 2004

A performance of seeing, formed through an improvised manipulation of the camera, connecting body, light and environment in one continuous recording.

Shot in Umbria, Italy

 

 

"macro fingers in front of the lens provide an ad hoc matte filter, a close focussing mask, rendering the filtered sunlit landscape hazy and indistinct, just as the close sound of breath and tapping on the microphone mingle with the ambient sounds of wind and crickets."
