Images from Garden
Dir. Michaela Nettell
Garden is an experimental video produced during an artistís residency at Culpeper Community Garden in London.
Pairs of 35mm slides are overlaid and re-photographed to create double exposure effects. These photos are then sequenced to create illusions of movement. The images describe individual observations of the social space of an urban garden.
The audio is fabricated from soundfield recordings captured over the course of 48 hours in the garden and neighbouring locations. Guided by duration, flicker and time passing in the image, the interleaved sounds reflect the process of double exposure and compose distances between the photography and the bustling city around.
Screenings and presentations include:
