Synopsis

Patiently persistent mist conceals trees in the Eden River valley in northwestern England in a restless image draws the viewer’s attention to the visible image field, while its frame emphasizes the border of the unseen in the phenomenological stillness of the implied landscape. John Woodman (1948) focuses on experimental film and video art, about which he has even written a number of books (Structure of Chance, In Search of the Sacred, Sequences). One of the primary themes of his work is landscape and how it is differently perceived in relation to time, season, and light. His work has been presented at many international festivals.

“Fields in Mist, filmed through heavy fo g, is an investigation of light, duration, revelation, visual appearance and disappearance. The scene is gradually revealed and then obscured by mist presenting a reflexive and contemplative viewing experience.”
