Short films, usually of two minutes or less, are a signature feature of Strudwick’s work. The artist’s films could be described as conceptual sketches, short “filmic” moments which concisely and acutely illustrate...something. Strudwick’s films draw upon a wide range of influences and approach a range of topics, relying less on traditional narrative structures and more on the relationships of objects in space across time as a means to communicate with the viewer.
