Flock of Seagulls

Mark Lewis’ films are deceptively simple, often employing a reduced or minimal formal language. They typically consist of a single shot, whether tracking, zooming, or simply static with no camera motion. The films rarely have sound or any visible cuts, and neither does his work Flock of Seagulls. The work is typical of Lewis’ methodology: shot in Vancouver on Second Beach in 2012, a very short clip shows a man walking along a beach promenade when a perfect triangular formation of seagulls passes through the sky overhead. The scene subsequently reverses and creates the impression that it could be looped eternally.

Mark Lewis lives and work in London, UK.
