Vernacular

“expressed or written in the native language of a place”

What does the human mind experience when a journey is forced upon it,
When this same mind must choose to stay or go and accept death as a high probability?

This place, this native place, leaving, abandoning, fleeing, the native language must be left behind and if death does not subsume the body a new language, a new place will be forcibly absorbed into every cell of being. The container is split after its journey, ready for scrap, divided by its flame ridden incisions. A fire has burnt the corton steel into a palette of burnt umber, Prussian blue and venetian red. The violent cuts allow a striking lightning bolt of sunlight to draw its way in, circulating this rusted cold incubator of death.
Culminating in a corner, inhabited by a pool of still filthy oil ridden water. A blue vibrating magnified light sits on the surface of the pool, reverberating, rejoicing in its detachment from concerns of life and death.

Big Screen x Glasgow Short Film Festival | The Art School & CCA23rd March, 2015

For this year’s Glasgow Short Film Festival, Big Screen organised a non-stop barrage of student-made 1 minute short films.

Big Screen is a student led group at GSA that celebrates the value of the social experience of cinema; exploring obscure documentaries, ageing epics, cult horror and everything in between. Big Screen provides a platform for engaging in discussions surrounding the relationship between the cinematic and artist moving image and provides a valuable forum for sharing and discussing student moving image work.

Loosely based on the theme of ‘Transitions’, the evening brought together student moving image submitted through an open call. The audience then voted for their favourites – the top 3 were screened at the closing ceremony for GSFF at the CCA.

Check out the winning films!
