DESCRIPTION

The American landscape is examined in distinct ways in these recent experimental films. Jeremy MenziesBetween the Lines uses time lapse and night photography to observe the human-built environment in a series of exquisitely composed takes. Rick Bahto’s Still Life depicts an arrangement of potted plants situated in locations around their native environment that have been transformed by human activity. John Palmer explores real and imagined fragments of the California landscape through a variety of alternative techniques in his Landscape Quartet. Finally, Shauna McGarry and Lorna Turner present alternate views of the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles in short Super 8 portraits.
