Making kinetic sculptures has long been an interest of mine. Since moving into film I have used my sculptures in different ways. Sometimes I project the film onto sculpture and the piece becomes an installation. At other times I film the sculptures and they become an integral piece of the film.
The Quietest of Whispers was made in response to heavy snowfalls in the Spring of 2018 in Carlisle. The durational film of snow is projected on to a kinetic sculpture representing the three elements - earth, air, water - all of which are represented in the work. They are then reflected around the installation. The soundtrack of readings about snow are read by the artist.
