In this practice-led research project I will explore film phenomenology through the production & exhibition of six short experimental film-poems. Key questions regarding how we experience a film beyond audiovisual perceptions, combined with a theoretical investigation discussing the impact of sensorial filmic experiences will be informed by the practice & exhibition of my work. These debates will relate to key themes concerning the interaction between human sensorium, memory, landscape & identity. The work will address these questions in the specific context of the Western Isles of Scotland.
