f/ocal length consists of a show reel of video and animation. The concept of f/ocal length is to provide a snapshot of work by contemporary artists working with the moving image. The title of the exhibition reflects the fact that the distance of these artists (their 'focal length') from North Wales may vary, but that their artistic practice has nevertheless been influenced by the region.
