Almost imperceptibly morphing shapes and colours - based on underwater Super 8 footage taken off the coast of Kerry, Ireland in the 1960's.
I came across this footage whilst working on a marine documentary for Irish television and was struck by the depth of the colours in the cold waters around the Blasket Islands, these colours had been further enhanced by the highly degraded stock that had been stored unseen for 40 years. I telecined the footage without any colouring and used it as the basis of this hypnotic work.
Special thanks to Fergus O'Farrell for the piano loop that is the foundation of the music.
