‘Champ de Mars (Chant de Mars)’, digital video, 01.53 mins., 2013

‘Champ de Mars (Chant de Mars)’ is an experimental video, which is concerned with the play of light, colour and sound, and with the contrast between visible and invisible, sonorous and silent, rhythmical and jarring, as well as with what is revealed and what is obscured. The music is Barry Hall’s ‘Terra Zona’, played by the composer and the Burnt Earth Ensemble, on a ‘flowerpotophone’.

‘Champ de Mars’ features in Stigmart VIDEOFocus, Stigmart10, Art Review, March 2014. http://issuu.com/stigmart10press/docs/stigmart_videofocus_-_special_issue/40
