Wild Mountain Time (5:30, Super 8, 2014) is in-between borders, both intermedia and international. A sequence of photographs of the Scottish landscape becomes the intermediate background for a further seeing, that returns the flat picture plane to a three-dimensional reality that is once again flattened by the photographic process of film. Using this as a platform, the exhibition also features a series of photo-based works that take on the formal interests of the filmwork, namely transparency, scale, dimensionality and time. Photographs separate the past from the present and using filters as well as other optic devices, the photographic image is intercepted, drawing the viewer out of the depth of the landscape and onto the surface of the material that is actually seen.
