CreatorsSherwin, G. and LUX London

Publication by LUX of a set of 34 films made by Guy Sherwin between 1975 and 2013. The series is held together by certain formal considerations; each film is three minutes long, i.e. the length of a roll of 16mm film, all films are b/w and silent, and the order in which they are shown is flexible. Aside from this is a range of imagery from portraiture, to still life, to travel plus an investigation into the medium of film itself. The films operate on the border between movement and stillness, revealing their inner logic through an active engagement in looking.
The DVD produced by LUX contains a random play feature, and the publication includes a set of 34 cards. Both features highlight the modular, non-linear characteristic of the Series.
