Film

 

 

This short film is called ‘Leavings’ and is, as its name suggests, a response to this idea. How we leave, what we might take with us and the traces and fragments of ourselves that remain. There is a recurring clip of film throughout the piece which was shot on super 8 on the uninhabited island of Swona in Orkney. There is a cottage where the contents of a home remain after forty years of absence. The ‘leavings’ of a life.
