Notes From A Journey uses images and sound captured whilst on a journey through the British countryside as the material for an exploration of the acts of looking/seeing listening/hearing.

More than simply mapping a journey across the country, this film presents a map of Daniel & Clara's engagement with the images of the landscape. By reducing them to impressions, fragments, fictions and forms, the recorded images/sounds are transformed into “artefacts” which, when presented in the sequence of a film, activate narratives, ideas and sensations in the viewer.

Central to the film are scenes shot at the Neolithic mound and stone circle of Avebury, motifs that speak of the long and complex relationship humans have to their environment and how through art and ritual we seek to understand our place in relation to it.

Ultimately this film is a journey in itself – a first person encounter with the limits of perception, existing in a place where both the recording device and the human senses are tested.
