5 min. 43 sec. Ed. 3 + A.P.

Garden Island is a 16mm film shot on location in Kauai, one of the islands of the hawaiian archipelago where I travelled to expose myself to a supposedly “paradise” site. Film is being used in a very essential manner to depict through a sequence of long color and black and white shots, very few images of the visited place. As in my other film works, film is in itself an experimental essay, extremely simple, deprived of any narrative, of evident sensory richness and certain pictorial quality. Despite the “beauty” of the shots and the location itself, a certain detachment and remoteness is perceived.
