‘Crossings’ is a short ‘essay film’ which I made whilst exploring the intertidal marshes and mudflats near my home on Morecambe Bay during the Covid-19 pandemic. The work explores aspects of time in relation to place, my physical and mental relationship with the environment through walking, and mobile technology. I shot the film on my iPhone because its portability allowed me to respond intuitively to events taking place in the moment. Recording on such a small mobile device felt quite intimate and, at times, the work started to shift tentatively towards performance.
