For Lithic Choreographies, UK-based Australian Sam Smith has conceived a moving-image work that promotes a de-centered human experience and considers multi-species paradigms.
Shot on the Swedish island of Gotland, this work blends historical data and speculative science fictions to chronicle different chapters in the story of the island’s geological strata. Working with local people to ground the film’s investigations within the communities and landscapes of Gotland, Smith seeks to re-imagine our modes of engagement with, and contributions to, ecological assemblages.
Lithic Choreographies was commissioned by International Art Space for spaced 3: north by southeast and produced in collaboration with Baltic Art Center.
This film is also included in the screening program of Within Deep Time: scratching the surface of the antipode, at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre. For time and dates please follow the link.
Sam Smith is also featured in ACP's Photofile #102, along with William Klein, Wim Wenders, Murray Close, Dean Cross, Hayley Millar-Baker, Joe Wigdahl, Ahmed Mater, Yang Yongliang, Anders Edström and Alex Majoli.
