‘frisson’ is a photographic stop motion film motivated by the rapid decline of the Ash tree. The film documents human interaction with a forest and draws on the similarities between both forest and human ability to network socially. This questions whether the damage that has occurred can be reversed with help from human intervention.
The images were taken as the film’s subjects interacted with the trees whilst listening to a piece of music which had previously given them a physical reaction honing in on the connection and energy between tree and person.
The film was made by Kent film maker Cydney Adams during a workshop with Manuel Vason offered as part of The Ash Project
