Cinema Sark at the Environmental Art Festival Scotland.  It’s not often that video presented as sited work so elegantly uses it’s setting, or so engrosses the viewer.  This work is a meditation on the many dimensions of the Sark, the river that divides Scotland and England in the West.  The space under the M6 motorway is both a constant reminder of the context, but also an ideal location for the screening.
