Still from Moving (2010), sound, digital video, 6:16
This still from a part of the film that was shot from my kitchen door. The object in the middle looks as if a wounded human has lain down, balancing on the pots. But it is an enormous stick that I dragged home from the park after a walk. I watched it lie prone like that for a several months.
While hearing complaints about the destruction of trees from the changing park, I became interested in all sorts and sizes of sticks. This was the longest I picked-up.
I enjoyed being in the park so much that summer, not realising that my partner and I were going to have to move-out after 5-years. I shot the film just three days before we finally had to move out.
