A landscape film as a formal structure, reflecting on presence and place

Made while on a visit to Connemara in Ireland, the film is partly a response to the sense of time that the landscape evoked.

Time is experienced through the film in a number of ways: traces of past human activity, static shots of long duration, the same places revisited in different conditions of weather and light, exact print repeats of some of the shots, exact repeats of ambient sounds (set against different images), and overall symmetrical shape to the film."

I was also interested to discover what kind of aural and visual spaces the mind would create from the juxtaposition of conflicting stimuli. -- G.S.

Only shown a few times in the 1980s, Connemara remained unseen for over three decades. Originally shot on 16mm, Sherwin's rarely screened film was lovingly restored by EYE Institute Amsterdam and Guy Edmunds, thus saving it from oblivion.

The film has also been screened in conjunction with live improvised music.
