Eye of Sound: In this beautiful short film, Peter Collis contrasts footage of the natural world with its disintegration under digital manipulation processes. Using stills as his main source material, Collis creates illusions of movement by splitting the screen in different layers of clarity and distortion, by using the traditional rostrum camera, and by contrasting high definition black and white pictures of flora with their corrupted or glitched avatars. Collis' beautiful visual compositions are supported by a haunting digital soundscape in which field recordings and elusive sonic sketches are craftly combined and edited in order to produce a somehow unsettling aural drift. A very beautiful film.
