The Landscape Confronts the Camera

Richard O'Sullivan

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


The piece consists of a series of video images showing a coastal landscape in mid Wales. These images are interrupted by a wandering photographer. The stills captured by the photographer are superimposed over the video footage at the moment of exposure.

This work is a meditation on the differences between the temporality of video and photography; a deconstruction of the camera's portrayal of space; and an exploration of the tension between aesthetic form and documentary recording.
