Abstract: The scale of water was an exhibition held at the Michael Pennie Gallery, Bath from 18 March to 12 May 2024. A panel discussion and multiple screenings took place on Friday 10th May. The screenings included: Kathy Hinde, River Traces (16mm film - screening with 16 mm Projector, 9 minutes). River Traces 1 was created in collaboration with the River Frome in Bristol, by exposing samples of river sediment and algae directly onto 16mm film, and developing using eco-processing techniques such as coffee and plant developers. Physical traces are generated through a direct encounter between the material qualities of the river and the film itself, effecting both the visual and audio track. Emma Critchley : Common Heritage, 2010 (HD video, 25 mins) The drive to explore and exploit the sea floor means this once seemingly infinite landscape is now being carved up into territorial space. Common Heritage is an urgent response to the gold rush of deep-sea mining for rare earth minerals, exposing how reverberant layers of industrialisation have affected the way we relate to our environment Siobhan MacDonald - Methane Lake (video, 8:39 mins) As our worlds ice disappears-out boglands are exposed. These massive landscapes hold many toxic gasses, like methane. And also many clues to the past in seds and matter buried deep in the past. Methane Lake brings together themes spanning locations form the Arctic tundra to Irish bogland that explores the slow workings of geological processes found deep in the permafrost, meditating on the sentience of ice. Evgenia Abergueva: Haulout (documentary film, 25 mins) A lone scientist on the coast of the Siberian Arctic finds that warming seas have taken a toll on the walrus migration, as documented in a film by Evgenia Arbugaeva and Maxim Arbugaev. "Haulout" was nominated for Best Documentary Short at the 2023 Oscars Academy Awards.
