Keywords: Art & Artists, Films about Film, Media

As the title indicates this is a deliberately academic work, conceived in much the same way that a composer might make a 'study'. It is not about a Cezanne painting, but attempts to apply certain concepts related to the relativity of changing viewpoints in observation and recording. In much the same way as a Cezanne painting records within its image, the problem of stabilizing a perception and the way in which shifts in viewpoint modify the spatial experience, the film uses time lapse and time exposure to seek a filmic equivalent for this aesthetic. --M.
