Grazing not Gazing: 16mm Film Workshop, Hestercombe Gardens (2020)

Responding to Ben Rivers’ Urthworks exploration of ‘other worldliness in the world around us’, artists Katie Davis and Vicky Smith use approaches central to their own practices to conceive a 2-day 16mm film shoot and process workshop. Using extension tubes, wide lenses and B&W fine grain negative film, the grazing not gazing workshop explores the transformative potential of macro film-making, where small things filmed close up, lacking external reference or perspective, seem altered, appearing as vast and textured landscapes.
