Mapping Perception (1998, 37 minutes): The film result of a four year collaboration between Giles Lane, curator and producer, Andrew Kotting and Mark Lythgoe, a neurophysiologist at the Institute of Child Health, London, with the participation of Eden Ktting.
This Our Still Life (DVD) BFI
A new film by Andrew Kötting is always cause for celebration, and his latest is deliciously eccentric, yet touching portrait of his daughter Eden as a young woman in their tumbledown Pyrennean farmhouse. Last seen in Gallivant (1996) as a plucky kid touring the coastline of Britain with her Big Granny, Eden, now 23, is here shown painting still lifes and singing along to the radio as the seasons ebb and flow around her. Reminiscent of Stan Brakhage’s Dog Star Man, this lo-fi marvel features music by Scanner’s Robin Rimbaud and a range of voices from Kotting’s sound archive to explore notions of nostalgia, memory and place.
