The Weight and the Silence is an exploration of landscape with and through a lens.

The background, a full 360degree panoramic photograph of a winter woodland in England, slowly slides across the screens. Floating in the foreground, short video, filmed around the same woodland, fade in and out – their meandering movements dictated by the movement of the the artist’s eye / video-camera lens.
