Colour, light and shadow shift across the surface of the forest as the period of a year is condensed into minutes.
Aspect is filmed in a forest over the period of a year. Using photographic techniques, such as time-lapse and long exposures on single film frames, the forest year is condensed into a few minutes. Light, colour and shadow travel across its surface and the film shifts between seeing the trees as trees and seeing the movement of light and shadow abstracting the real environment.
Fragments of unconscious forest sounds, ants in their anthill, the wind across the forest floor, the crack of a twig are reconfigured into an audio piece by Benedict Drew, that articulates the film (and the forest) in an illusive and ambiguous way.
