GUY SHERWIN: CINEMA OF PERCEPTION, CINEMA OF PERFORMANCE

Like a blast of cinematic conceptual art, film artist Guy Sherwin's hand-crafted films explore the elements of film's grain, tone, flicker, sound, light and space. Beautiful, enigmatic and sensual, these experimental films question our perception of ‘light moving in time'.
