Ventilator is set in two locations; a derelict ventilation system on a rooftop in the city of Glasgow (where I live and work) and a beach on the Ayrshire coast (where I grew up). This short experimental video comprises of a mixture of animation and filmed work, with the two protagonists- a woman and a masked, distorted man, encountering and being encountered by a variety of objects, mundane and foreign, many with motive-force of their own. The film is edited to be fragmentary and non-linear, with scenes dissolving and elements collapsing and bleeding into one another. Land art, totemic heads, and the repeated emergence and disintegration of masks throughout the piece will represent not a cryptography for the audience to decipher, but an invitation to engage within the ‘logic of sensation’.
