This series of videos builds on the film work made in the 1970’s called Observational Series. They were filmed in Super 8 as 3 minute continuous takes of different kinds of natural phenomena. The new ongoing series takes advantage of the flexibility of a hand held HD digital video camera which enables a quicker and more intuitive response to changing phenomena, for example to changing light or moments of transformation in ‘real time’ in events or occurrences which happen in landscape time/space. New also to this series is the filming of selected ‘objects’ in ‘real time’ within the landscape. These representations in digital video provide a different kind of phenomenological viewing experience. They present some questions concerning video and the represented light from objects recorded in space/time in continuous duration – the nature of the light of objects?

The video series will be ongoing and more will be added when appropriate. It is the intention to film the series in shorter continuous takes in comparison to the longer durations of my other video work.
