Terry Maker's silent film

Here's short film of Terry Maker sculpting words from Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem using 16 mm celluloid film, the inspiration behind her work, "Ozymandian Tree - A Silent Film." In using the medium of film in her pieces which we usually view in quiet galleries, "Ozymandian Tree" challenges us to re-think how mediums can be used beyond what we're used to.  

Terry Maker: Reckoning is on display in the El Pomar Gallery until June 3.
