Tiniest fragments gleaned

Webb-Ellis respond to Mike Stubbs’ brief “All you can do is glean information from the tiniest fragments. Trying to see everything makes you ill”.

Go and See from Webb-Ellis on Vimeo.

‘Go and See’ was made during a 2,418 mile journey over land to the Venice Biennale. A barrage of faces and masks, otherworldly figures on the roadside, the interior of our home as it barrels along the motorway. These fleeting images take on a bizarre significance as they layer and loop back, unpicking the seams of the everyday.
