Scanner’s film Falling Forward explores ideas of time and space. The video was shot at 1000 frames per second and in extreme slow motion: broken glass, ice, photographs, and dust fall vertically across the screen, the backdrop being what looks like an out-of focus building facade. The only actor in it is a woman who passes the screen briefly.
Scanner: “(Falling Forward suggests) a presence passing the camera, as if the spectator is looking through a window onto an event happening in real time. (...) The accompanying soundtrack maintains a hovering tension, creating an inviting, sensual yet melancholy présence.”
Scanner lives and works in London.
