This Space is Here for You Is a three-screen installation that plays with the boundaries of the moving image with the aim to place the viewer in the the conceptual space of the city park through sound and imagery, whilst alluding to the strange stories and emotions that are bound to these areas. The work sits within the broader theme of landscape, This Space is Here for You studies the lacunae that exist between nature and the urban; examining parklands and leisure spaces, with a focus on the uncanny through practice led research. The work is supported by a portfolio of images as a representation of the film produced and made whilst filming. The three screens show the following, a central landscape film with sound and moving image flanked by two separate moving image films in portrait format – all of which can be viewed here:
