Surface Tensions

Playing with Landscapes

San Francisco Art Institute

A program of new films which re-present images of rural and urban scenes by consciously working with the aspects of cinematic illusion. Films include Chris Welsby’s Drift (1995, premiere) which uses an ocean scene to play with audience expectation in ‘capturing’ reality on film; Peter Hutton’s Study of A River (1996, premiere), a study of the subtle shifts in movement and light of an Upstate New York flowing river; Bouquets (1995) by Rose Lowder, and new work by Vincent Grenier and others.
