vulture (2020)

vulture sets its sight on farm animals and their surrounding flora. Static shots and slow moving zooms, follow the grazing animals in their minute inter-species exchanges. When left to roam together the sensibilities of these “beasts” are allowed to surface.

The film was shot and processed with various means including flower/plant processing carried out as blooming occurred, from 2016-2018. In some cases a salt bath was used for fixing the film which was left soaking in the dark for 3 days.

Vultures hover over the barn, from high, with razor sharp eyesight, and a keen sense of smell. Together, they stalk and share their decaying sustenance. Intense acid in their stomach allows them to digest great quantities of their dead prey, without falling ill.
