Everything which we call nature… takes its title from a paragraph in Malevich’s 'The Non-Objective World', and explores the space between imaged and imagined space, abstraction and reality. The film is created using a combination of travelling mattes, filters and optical printing techniques. The result is a cacophony of primary coloured shapes that frenetically interrupt a inert monochrome forest scene, visually resembling experimental sound notations or an abstractionist composition.
