Dissolving Forest
Canada / 9:04 / 2011 / sound / colour / No dialogue
"Dissolving Forest" enhances its subject as a dynamic living entity. Shot in a lightly foliaged forest, it consists entirely of tracking shots, using slow shutter speeds to create pigment-like smears and vibrant color. The location sound, sometimes ominous, places the seemingly bucolic locale near civilization.

Visually, "Dissolving Forest" operates on three planes: the canvas-like background of the sky blown out to white, discernible forest in the middle ground, and foreground foliage reduced to streaming color-all tied together with frequent dissolves.

As early spring progresses into the deep greens of late spring, "Dissolving Forest" becomes a painting evolving in its frame.
