352 Birds
a film by Ross Jardine

2013. Digital slide show. 6 mins.12 secs
Part of an ongoing series of works that are located on the beach. The slideshow considers the relationship between varying factors of the landscape (geological, tidal, diurnal, ornithological). It is a progression of 352 photos taken during the transition from early afternoon to evening as the tide is withdrawing. The action of taking a photo was triggered by a bird flying into view.

Suspicions of a Peninsular Town
a film by Glen Jamieson.

colour slideshow. 15 mins
This Norfolk born artist Glen Jamieson’s account of returning to his hometown is built around topographical photographs of the town of Great Yarmouth, paired with prose that reflects on the town’s condition both past and present. What is created is an arresting synergy between ethereal images and an increasingly surreal narration

Untitled – 2011
a film by Ross Jardine

2011. Digital video. 2 mins 49 secs
A stop-animation film using imagery of work and repetition to narrate the frustration of occupying a system with limited possibilities. A sequence of photographs of a performance at the site where King Cnut notoriously attempted to stop the tide is photocopied again and again to the point where the wash of the sea erases the protagonist.

The screenings will be followed by a Q&Answer session with Mat Do.
