We are pleased to announce the publication of our seventh entry in Screenworks Volume 10.1, Susannah Ramsay's Experiencing the Filmpoem: A Film-Phenomenological Inquiry, https://doi.org/10.37186/swrks/10.1/7
Experiencing the Filmpoem presents five short experimental films which evoke multi-sensorial experiences for the viewer through visceral combinations of lens manipulation, camera movement and rhythmic editing. For Ramsay, filmpoems are a synthesis of these experimental techniques with poetic narration and soundscapes which constitute a deeply personal, expressive form of filmmaking. Her written statement contextualises this practice with historical insights and outlines her exhibition strategies for the work which aim to produce a reciprocal relationship between the artwork, the screening space and the viewer to provide an embodied experience.
Volume 10.1 is an open "rolling" volume which means we are accepting practice-research submissions on any subject throughout this academic year. More information and guidelines can be found online at our submissions page: http://screenworks.org.uk/submissions
Please feel free to get in touch directly if you have any questions about the journal or submission process.
Best wishes to everyone in this difficult time!
