I missed the listing, so I'm sorry for this, but...
My videos are being screened at the Millennium Film Workshop this weekend and I
think they're well worth your while. I've pasted the show description below.
Barningham's work is concerned first and foremost with the textures,
rhythms and colors possible in video. Largely using re-appropriated
footage from amateur meteorologists across the country, the videos in
this program re-invision landscapes not as majestic natural sculptures
but as objects, like video, that are struggling to exist. Colors and
shapes snap, gesticulate and then dissolve in a membrane of pixels.
Trees and clouds shift restlessly against ill-defined spaces and tremble at the
hand of invisible forces. Large fields bathe in scattered rays
of light which arrive as quickly and as painfully as they vanish.

If you're interested in how the work feels/looks, I've pasted a link to my
vimeo page below. Silence, Tropical and All, which are viewable on that page,
will be screening in this program. I will also be attending the show if you'd
like to discuss the work.
Thanks for your interest and time! I hope to see some of you on Saturday.
