Helena Swatton, State, 2006. Courtesy of the artist.

The magnificent and awe-inspiring natural environment is the starting point for this reflective journey of images by Newcastle based artist, Helena Swatton. State is a large single screen video installation, filmed on location in Iceland, especially prepared for, and premiered at, AV Festival 06. Representing the transient state of life itself, it reveals an intriguing window of opportunity to dwell on the ‘moment’, to allow the viewer to consider the inherent and incessant passing of time.
