Academic Still Life

As the title indicates this is a deliberately academic work, conceived in much the same way that a composer might make a 'study'.

It is not about a Cezanne painting, but attempts to apply certain concepts related to the relativity of changing viewpoints in observation and recording. In much the same way as a Cezanne painting records within its image the problem of stabilising a perception and the way in which shifts in viewpoint modify the spatial experience, the film uses time lapse and time exposure to seek a filmic equivalent for this aesthetic. - M.L.G.
