While driving towards Killin, through the deep dark forest, Owen told me of the artist Ben Rivers. Here you can see one of his films, “Origin of the Species” (2008). Rivers has just completed 4 new films under the collective title of “Slow Action” which are currently on show at Matt’s Gallery in London (Guardian article about Rivers here). You can watch 3 of the 4 films here, the final one will be available on 4th March. All four of these films were made on/about islands, firstly Lanzarote, then Tuvalu, the incredible abandoned island city of Gunkan in Japan, and finally Somerset (not yet an island). Watch them, they are good. But first watch this:
