This is the first in a series of five haiku films, that were created whilst studying MA fine art at University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury under the guidance of Nicky Hamlyn. The idea was to create a visual haiku, using 17 seconds, instead of 17 syllables. Essentially, like Japanese haiku’s, their aim is to evoke the natural world.
The film was also shown as part of the Every Second Counts films festival run by Strange Love; time based media festival 2018 in The Photographers Gallery, London.
I am revisiting this piece as I am developing a project to use the 16mm format once again in the production of music videos, or music films in this case.
See future projects section for more details on the music film project coming soon…
