‘This was one of the shortest and simplest pieces I have ever made and, I think, it remains the most formally elegant. It was the last in the Three Seasons series for Channel 4, but after shooting hours of footage for Summer this was the only sequence that I felt I could work with. So it remains an introuduction to a piece I never made. It consists of a one-shot one-minute embrace between a male hand and its female counterpart. The image is simple and sensual and it plays out its digital coupling against the aural backdrop of summer sounds’. – C.E.
