Goodwin, D; (2003) Above/Below. UNSPECIFIED

Full text not available from this repository.


Above/Below evokes the relationship between public space and private visual encounter. The two screens, positioned horizontally at the top and bottom of the raised platform, project images filmed in Durham Cathedral, one of the largest religious buildings in Europe. The screen below centres around Goodwin's secret observations from the pinnacle of the Cathedral's tower filming through an invisible opening down onto the people and activities moving through the floor area known as "the Crossing". The screen above captures the intensely contrasting light that strikes the Cathedral visitors who glance upwards at the awe-inspiring structure. Goodwin has evolved a language between the camera's movement through space and the soundtrack that suggests different types of contact and exchange between above and below. The public's engagement is an active component of the work, searching for orientation between the two screens. The soundtrack is created from the wild sounds found in the Cathedral with elements of orchestration.
