Elizabeth McAlpine


Elizabeth McAlpine’s work explores the two essential elements of all film: light and time. This exhibition brings together her 8mm sculptural film works that physically mark the passage of time. Square Describing a Circle (10th May) was filmed using a square stencil during a 12-hour day. The result is a flickering square beam of light, following the movement of the sun, which, when rotated references a circle. Tilt (in 6 Parts) is composed of six projectors, projecting six white frames punctuated by colour every sixth of the way through the film.
