Object Studies was shot in northeast Umbria, Italy. It was made in the same location as a number of other of my recent films. It is organised around a colour scheme based loosely on the hues of the colour temperature s...展开cale; brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, white. Time-lapse, interlaced, single-frame sequences and overlapping dissolves were deployed to explore densities and translucencies of light and the interactions of different kinds of cast-shadows. The space between the camera and its subject is also explored: Space is flattened, collapsed, expanded and bridged. In each section I tried to establish a relation between camera and subject that responds to the peculiarities of the spatial array in front of the lens. Ultimately, the idea of "in front of" is challenged.
