Stills for a new film work, castorocene, by artist George Finlay Ramsay

35mm and 16mm stills for a film production by artist George Finlay Ramsay, shot on location at the wet lands at Bamff, Perthshire, and following on from my 16mm film camera workshop looking at the Bolex H16 and Canon Scoopic, and following a mis-charge on that camera, exploring the continuity and limitations of using the Bolex solo at the location, at a mysterious space and elegant and supernatural, unknown and unknowable (for me anyway), alien and natural, wild sounds and wild evidence, new viscosities, sculptures and monuments and the non-human interacting with human narratives, passings too, fungi at the site of trauma, and wonderful conversations too.

1/10/2021, 35mm b/w film stills for a 16mm film, colour, sound, 2021.  Commissioned by Rupert, Vilnius, Lithuania. Further information at the artist’s website: George Finlay Ramway
