The experimental video A Year at the Coal Loader was created during art residency at the historical industrial Coal Loader site in Sydney, Australia. It plays with the material features of the site in the Surrealist, dream-like manner.
A Year at the Coal Loader
by A+B Studholme
Single channel video with sound
Duration 3:42 min.
The video Treespotting focuses on trees and people in the age of Anthropocene. It plays with the contrast between the still presence of the trees and the transient flow of people in selected urban locations of Sydney's North Shore. The trees that tenaciously cling to life in the city emerge as silent and dignified witnesses to the human condition. Although often ignored or just overlooked, they appear as a fixed axis to people's diverse daily lives. The practice of "treespotting" therefore provides short glimpses into these lives.
