After the Storm Digital video 7’ 58 colour sound 2010 / short extract

Through a long continuous take of a snow storm on a cold December morning in Cumbria, the video presents the spectator with a ‘real time’ phenomenological experience of visual change, transience and transformation. As the storm subsides more of the landscape and its colour are gradually revealed and the film space is changed. The hand held camera and the distinctive way in which this registers movement, together with the acknowledgement of the spectators/viewers position within the cinematic experience, have become important aspects of my video work. The possibility of chance is built into After the Storm in both image and sound.
