Silent Mountains, Singing Oceans, and Slivers of Time
The Continuous Quantities series is structured on a Leonardo da Vinci proposition to divide an hour into 3,000 equal parts and offers the most kinetic exploration yet of Gatten's inquiries into the relationship between text and image.
The Invisible Ink series, as the title implies, employs the most minimal imagery to be found in Gatten's films, but this minimalism belies the powerfully emotional content underpinning the works.
The two What the Water Said films are among the most written about and acclaimed experimental films of recent years. (67 mins., 16mm)
