A series of studies in film of our relationship with mementos this film related to my own memento of my father. Given by me as a child to my father for his Birthday, and carried by him for many years before he died. The process was like getting to know more about him through an adults eyes. The film plays with time reinstating something as was then bringing it back to the present.
A collaboration between myself and poet/ writer./ artist Maureen Sangster . A country lane near my home was the stomping ground of generations of young people and children all who left their marks on the trees. These form a timeline from 1948 onwards. The visuals were taken and edited by myself and the poem produced in response to the place and my images by Maureen. This film was shown in Cupar Arts Festival 2010 in The Silo and on Cupar Bandstand, as well as Stanza Poetry Festival, St Andrews 2011.
