Each of these pieces begins with a recognisable landscape image which, over the duration of the film, is broken down or obscured through a material process.
In Immergence the original image is interrupted by the introduction of plumes of ink; these gradually spread through the landscape, eventually obscuring it.
In Forms of Forgetting a photographic image of a landscape has its surface scarred and finally obliterated by the action of two fighting pens.
In Vanishing Point the same image is documented as it dissolves in a bleach solution; the pigments gradually separate from the surface of the photographic paper to create an abstract impression of the original landscape.
