Not Of This Earth

Imagining The Hidden World


Gastropod is the result of a two day residency in an empty shop building on High Street in Belfast. I approached the space as a film set exploring ideas of otherworldliness and low-fi film making. A bell jar containing a collection of slugs was installed in the space in front of a black mirror. It was not long before the slugs escaped and began to explore the space leaving traces of their movements behind. This film documents their escape.
