Details

Tony Hill's films present entirely new ways of looking at the world in which we live. His extraordinary sculptural films turn and transform, squeeze and stretch the landscape and constantly challenge how we see what's around us. They are films about perception, time and space but they are also films about the body and memory and being alive. Above all, they are constantly surprising and delightful and, often, funny.

Many of the films have been created with specifically built camera rigs, and a selection of these is demonstrated in this richly illustrated interview with the artist. Among the works that Tony Hill discusses are Downside Up (1984) with its constantly orbiting viewpoint; Water Work (1987), which was shot on and just below the surface of a swimming pool; the sensual film Laws of Nature (1997); and the artist's idiosyncratic portrait of Darlington Hall Estate in Devon, Camera Obscura (2000).

theEYE is an excellent introduction to contemporary artists and their works and provides an ideal resource for a wide range of audiences, including galleries, museums and colleges, as well as the individual art-lover.
