Ballysallagh 360 is an outcome from the Pan 360 project.Exploring and critiquing methods of video based landscape narrative construction.An ongoing series of short, landscape based, video works made by attaching a modified camera to a leash and whirling it through the space above and around the body. This simple activity of production dissolves conventional landscape scenes or views into sequences of dramatic visual activity where the landscape image is literally put into a spin. The raw video-scapes combine both the performative activity with the beautiful concordant / discordant footage of the environment.Through this, it aims to merge the figure and the landscape within a spatial narrative that is not constructed on the organizing principle of the static frame and single viewpoint but on the physicality of actions in the landscape embedded with functional technology.The significance of location enters the project as each place contributes specific visual data creating specific narratives faithful to location and method.This outcome was made in the Craigantlet Hills in Co. Down on the outskirts of Belfast, Northern Ireland.Ballysallagh 360 has been shown at national and international venues.
