Shadows on a house
This silent film is a close-up time lapse shot of shadows moving across the outside wall of a house over a period of 4 to 5 hours. The shadows are mainly of trees and bushes in a garden, but over time their forms change and they begin to resemble something alien, almost unnatural.
Weir lines 2
Weir lines 2 is a sequence of close-up shots of river water flowing over a weir. It shows the surface of the water marked by moving reflections of vegetation surrounding the weir, and the footbridge crossing it.
This film is from a series of single shot, close-up studies of river water flowing over a weir. The shots capture the interaction of the landscape surrounding the weir with the light on the surface of the water, often creating mysterious patterns and marks on it. The film contains a reflection of the footbridge that is distorted and broken up by the fast moving water crossing the weir.
This silent film is a combination of two time-lapse film shots. The movement of the clouds in the image of landscape on the left affects the movement of the shadows on the wall in the right hand image.
Light on water 3
Light on water 3 is a single shot, close-up study of water as it flows over a weir and captures the interaction of the landscape surrounding the weir with the light on the surface of the water. The shot is affected by gradual changes in the sky above the weir, creating changes that can be very subtle, occurring slowly and almost imperceptibly.
This film is a combination of two tracks of moving images of a river. The lower shots are close-up images of the water in the river shown in the single shot at the top.
Weir light 6 is a single shot of the surface of river water as it flows over a weir. Changes in the sky above the weir results in the water’s surface gradually changing from being opaque and reflective to becoming more transparent.
