Nick Collins has been making films since the late 1970s. They centre on small scale instances of human geography and habitation, spanning investigations of archeological sites to contemporary environs. Graphic patterns of light and shadow are the focus of his observational camera, with his subjects including Greek temples, domestic gardens, and town squares. Collins has often collected his films together in short series of 'little films' reflecting their lyricism.
Jennifer Nightingale’s films broadly fall into two categories of ‘pinhole films’ and ‘knitting films’. The pinhole films that she has selected to show here include a new two-screen configuration of West Window, East Window. Other films include pieces from her Cornish Knitting Pattern series, which document the coastal locations where the knitting patterns derive from. The patterns themselves dictate editing decisions.
