Motion Path

Creators:Ellard, Graham and Johnstone, Stephen

'Motion Path' was a twelve-screen video installation shown as one of three individual, but thematically linked, exhibitions about architect Erich Mendelsohn.

'Motion Path' was filmed in four buildings designed by Mendelsohn, located in Germany, the USA and England. The 11-minute films were exhibited as a synchronised twelve screen installation. 'Motion Path' was shot using custom-designed mobile camera mounts and foregrounds the language and effects of parallax, transparency and simultaneity in the filmic representation of architectural space. My interest in parallax and the mobile camera was developed from the research for 'Holding Pattern', a large scale public sculpture designed to be viewed through the windscreen of a moving vehicle. The project was constructed through extensive studio experimentation and consultation with relevant specialists.

An essay mapping the historical context informing the work was researched through a literature review and was published as Motion Path. A single screen version of the video work was presented at the BFI Southbank in July 2007.
