This animated film seeks to explore everyday farm objects by drawing them into playful relationships with natural phenomenon and materials. Emulating 'time-lapse' photography through stop-animation, these films ask questions about the past,present and future of an upland sheep farm in Wales. The questions asked through this work are about the way that time, in such a place, is often punctuated by narratives of a past and a future, complicating our views of linear history. It also asks questions about the heritage industries by basing it's methodological approach on contemporary archaeology and archaeologies of the present. What objects in the landscape get preserved and why? How can drawing attention to such everyday and mundane objects help us to understand the narratives of this rural location?
