A WALK TO MARKET IS AS BIG AS THE SUN, 6:26 Min, Film, February 2021.
Thanks to Circa and thanks to Eddie Peake's 'A Dream of a Real Memory'.
‘A walk to market is as big as the sun' considers the humanness with which we grapple with our environments, small and big. As we understand blurry approximates of vast and changing entities like the sun and our biosphere, they appear almost cartoon like. Both unreduced wholes and collectives of innumerable parts, they are indigestible.
We use the same audible/visual languages to unravel enormous tough webs cast from abstracted parts of our wider environment, as we wield when experiencing everyday human pursuits, like walking to buy eggs. Probing and celebrating inevitably emotional estimations, we journey from big to small and back to big again via a trip to the market.
