Cuts and Splices

“It’s funny doing everything remotely, firing things off into space and waiting for them to come back again…”

I love this snippet from the to and fro of emails with artist/film-maker Catherine Weir. After filming on Arran she has distilled – from hours of ‘footage’ (pixelage?) – this wee film:

Cut, spliced, chopped and shuffled, it’s been a quest for essence, a long process – with considerable patience on Catherine’s part – through which I have come to realise I prefer being behind the artwork (and not spot-lit; describing what I’d really prefer others to find – or seek – for themselves). But I’m curious to know what others think.

  2. I think the film is a very good summary, not only of the work but of your personality and attitude to what you do and make. I so wish I could be there for the launch. J
