Motion Parallax

All motion is relative. There is no fixed geometry in space. We can only experience motion of one object relative to another. The brain doesn't really know which object is moving...

A camera-object travelling through landscape records images of static objects/textures apparently moving, all at variable rates, depth cues constantly changing, the illusion problematic doubled, and representation confounded as projection produces the opposite - a travelling landscape. This was my first film and, as with later films and video work, in some way parallels issues I had been working through in my sculpture'. DH.
