Pistrino is a work in progress,assembled from time-lapse footage shot in Italy over the last three years. I am interested in how the relative values of light and shade are transformed in certain images of natural objects and related phenomena, so that, for example, a shadow becomes at least as strong as the object which casts it. This has the effect of complicating the reading of a given image, as well as creating a new kind of image from the interactions between objects and the shadows they cast. In some of the shots am also interested in how the perceptibility of grain is effected by light and focus levels. Prize winner at Media City Festival 2004.
