Bill Brand

Swan's Island (2006) 16mm, color, 5 min

Genre: Experimental

SWAN'S ISLAND explores gesture in painting, and how that relates to the hand held camera. Katy Martin paints on her own body, and Bill Brand captures the painted figure and its trace. In its choreography, SWAN'S ISLAND is a duet. The person filming and the person filmed are moving as one, and yet they are separate, each an island. Seeing and being seen are inextricably bound with emotions of love and loss, longing, and a sense of place.
