"Convinced that the future of art lies not in gallery show pieces but in its relationship to setting and environment, David Hall has placed shapes and forms in natural landscapes filmed in the Camargue, East Anglia, South Wales, the Midlands and South East England. This film is essentially an attempt to make a transition from the artist's work as sculptor to that of filmmaker. The film places sculptures in landscape, but, as Chris Welsby points out: "It is important to realise that the sculptures only work because they are recorded on film. Their fuunction in the film is to draw attention to the difference between our actual experience of space and the representation of a three dimensional subject on a two dimensional surface".
