Details

The 16mm films on this DVD reflect Hamlyn's early formation in painting and drawing, where intense observation was central to the effort to realise images of a visible world that is anything but straightforwardly apprehensible. All the work stems from the way the film medium lends itself to a particular way of structuring temporal images. In the case of film, as opposed to video, the characteristics and constraints of the technology push one towards a way of working with the frame as the basic spatio-temporal unit of construction.
This selection of films comprises townscapes, landscapes and interiors. Many of them were made spontaneously and quickly, even though they invariably contain sections composed of alternating frames and other structures that require precise calculations to be made. They are thus amalgams of planning and improvisation, containing totally structured sequences within looser overall structures. The ephemeral nature of space, light, rhythm and time is pinned down in numerically determined procedures and processes.

This DVD contains:
Hole, 1992,
Matrix, 1997,
Not Resting, 1999,
Pistrino, 2003,
