unexpectedly expansive

-a-memorable-rich-and-beguiling-film

a series of short clips filmed on an iPhone featuring
the Scottish countryside from a train window
a T-shirt on a radiator
and a cat pawing at a lamp

the fluidity of identity from a queer perspective
an exploration of the intertwining of landscape
body, technology and time

The film is difficult to explain.
There is lots going on,
a lot of it apparently randomly.
It explores class, gender, sexuality
and neolithic goddesses.


I’m getting old. :confused:

Never! There’s a satirical magazine in the UK called Private Eye, and they have a section called Pseuds Corner where people send in stuff like this that they’ve seen in newspapers and magazines. It would fit in nicely there.:lol:

Here's me thinking you would approve of 'neolithic goddesses' :lol:
Its the T-shirt on the radiator that wow'ed me, my house must be a shrine to modern art :lmao:

I think any of us could be *famous* and win prizes if we just attach long-winded, rambling explanations peppered generously with poetic and angst-ridden phrases to our images, and somehow ingratiate ourselves in art circles... spread the rumor (or have our friends do it) that we’re an unknown artist. :feet:

You SEE, Jen, this is what I’m talking about! The fact that the work is actually mediocre doesn’t matter. It’s got a deep and meaningful poem attached which all of a sudden makes it special. Lots of angst and soul-searching.

Don't be too hard on the artist. Much of the bush-wah we read about art comes from critics, theorists, and promoters talking about the art, not from the person actually producing it. (I see in this case there is a video interview with the artist, but I didn't watch it. I can't stand watching most web video, usually something that could be dealt with in a paragraph of text.)
