Stroking Trees

This was series of films I made after Hunter. I wanted to explore the transformation of the inanimate piece of wood into something that could be seen as alive. I played around with how my body was interacting and holding this object and the differences of stroke i was using, I wanted to find out if there is a difference between a lovers stroke and a mothers stroke and whether this was enough to transform the inanimate object into the living. The stills from this video work better then the actual film itself as it came across when watching the footage back that I was acting in front of the camera and not simply carrying out an action.
