Small Choir

Scott Morrison

Scott Morrison intertwines video installation and intricate sound compositions to create new ways of viewing both natural and synthetic environments. Morrison’s new work, Small Choir, is a single channel video that moves into an increasingly complex yet seemingly familiar world of natural elements. This rhythmic and undulating work combines his interest in the aesthetics of rural landscape, with his ability to bend an audience’s perception of spatial density and time. In Small Choir, light streams through surrounding woodland, its hazy spectrum of colour coaxing the viewer to squint their eyes and attempt to focus on the landscape in the distance. Here, Morrison is encouraging us to locate the familiar and experience it through the act of looking, and looking again.
