Field Notes: Processing the Idea of Nature in Los Angeles

field notes is a series of eleven short films that study the place and meaning of nature in the greater los angeles area. kate employs the concepts of biological field notes and artist sketches tools used by people in different fields to study, analyze, and process the world and extends those to film. shot entirely on super 8 and then hand-processed, it is on one level a series about nature, but it is also an exploration of disconnectedness, appearance, control, compartmentalization, and self in l.a. it proposes a more nuanced understanding of nature, one that celebrates wonder, connection, discussion, and cooperation.

this was kate's project for her month-long artist residency at echo park film center as part of its new la air program.
