To Swing Over a Field. 2007, played in loop.

A girl is swinging over and into the landscape. The only sound to be heard is from the squeaking noise and distant cars.

The film is constructed from two movements: firstly, the swing that constantly moves forward and backwards emphasising the horizon line as she moves in and out of frame. Secondly, the cyclic movement of the two sequences playing in a loop; summer turns into winter and winter fades into intertitles which says, ‘Don’t go, stay’/‘Do I have to?’/‘Yes’.  Restarted, we are back to summer.

To Swing Over a Field was projected onto a wall located where the audience crossed between three different parts of the exhibition.
