Notes from a Journey
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 72'30'' | Royaume-Uni | 2019
"Notes From A Journey" uses images and sound captured whilst on a journey through the British landscape as the material for an exploration of the acts of looking/seeing listening/hearing. More than simply mapping a journey across the country, this film presents a map of the filmmakers' engagement with the images of the landscape. By reducing them to impressions, fragments, fictions and forms, the recorded images/sounds are transformed into “artefacts” which, when presented in the sequence of a film, activate narratives, ideas and sensations in the viewer. Central to the film are scenes shot at the Neolithic mound and stone circle of Avebury, motifs that speak of the long and complex relationship humans have to their environment and how through art and ritual we seek to understand our place in relation to it. Ultimately this film is a journey in itself – a first person encounter with the limits of perception, it exists in a place where both the recording device and the human senses are tested.
Daniel & Clara, two humans one artist on a journey of exploration of dimensions real and imagined, the results of which consist of moving image, photography and performance. In their current work they have been exploring the British landscape as a site for encounters with the mysterious, the eerie, the otherworldly and the unknown. As they say, “we seek to see with one eye open and one eye closed, sight turned simultaneously out towards the world and inward to the depths of the human experience.” In their work, images and sounds of the landscape become activators of narratives where past, present and the imagination intermingle. Their work has been exhibited and screened internationally at galleries and film festivals including Whitechapel Gallery, Kettle’s Yard, Fabrica Gallery, Close-up Cinema, BFI, Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival, Doclisboa, Microcinema Artist Moving Image, Museu de Arte Moderna Rio de Janeiro, Black Box Farnham, Film Mutations Zagreb. In 2019 they launched Moving Image Artists (MIA), an organisation dedicated to supporting and cultivating contemporary moving image art and experimental film. This includes an online magazine, screenings and the Moving Image Salon, a monthly gathering for artists to meet, share and discuss their work. The Moving Image Salon takes place at Film and Video Umbrella, London. Several of their films are distributed online by Tao Films and Kinoscope. Films by Daniel & Clara are also included in the BFI National Archive.
