About

Dziga Vertov wrote in his manifesto The Council of Three (1923): 'The main and essential thing is: the sensory exploration of the world through film.'

This shorts program curated by Gideon Koppel offers work by eight artists who each take a sensory approach to exploring the world. They do not use the camera and microphone simply as recording devices, but as 'microscopes' through which the otherwise unseen and unheard can be discovered. They look, listen, and respond to the everyday and unspectacular; composing stories that might be difficult to identify and describe in words. At once we are reminded of what Philip Larkin once wrote about his childhood home: that ‘nothing, like something, happens everywhere’.
