R.U.N. – A study on spatial objectification. As part of a larger series called walk, run, sit, stand and jump that seeks to reframe the visual perspective of the body in simple action.

Shot one Sunday morning in Perth, Australia on a deserted down hill road. A camera was secured to the back of a moving car and the performer ran in and out of the frame. A three-way conversation is overheard between the runner, cameraman and driver, that enables the runner to stay with the car and in the shot. The editing process utilises the mechanical intervention of the cameras in-built strobe effect, omitting certain frames whilst leaving the sound track untouched. Offering a disjointed view of a body in continuous motion related to its shadowed self.
