There were two initial impulses for the film: the paintings of John Turner (whence the bracketed title "sun vision") whose almost-not-there paintings dovetail with the space I find myself in at this stage of life: at the frontier between youth and old age, not all-is-still-to-come but not all-is-over yet either; and the spirit-filled paintings of Emily Carr, particularly her later swirling treetops and skies.
Untitled #1 is a film of liminal thresholds, borders, amorphous states - sky, clouds, fog, lake, snow. A film in motion - camera gestures and emulsion activity. People and seasons pass in the daily repetitive cycles- repetitions and reprises and beginnings again - sameness amidst the fleeting. Blurring, merging - the world as it is forming and disappearing...Not nothing, everything.
