A Film by Virginia Aurora Scott
When Sarah Hyde, my Amerta Movement tutor, first suggested a project to me in October 2016, my default was to think piano. But what was to emerge was an art project with camera work, which I had already been contributing to our movement group sessions.
6 of my abstract canvases inspired by my musical improvisation work were set free in my small town garden patio movement space, to be in nature and ambient sound.
This film has been compiled from the many images and films recorded since that time to the present day, witnessing the journey so far.
