Robert Todd: Thunder

Robert Todd feels things through landscape. In the first film of his I saw, fields bristled in sunlight, the hirsute stems of Queen Anne's lace lit by the rising sun. Like the psychoanalyst Gaston Bachelard, Todd thinks that all materiality contains a metaphysics of unseen relations.

"Life shivers as the ground beneath and sky above tremble," he writes.

More of his films are available for viewing here:
