A Method for Gathering Leaves

A short video, showing the artists’ father individually gathering leaves from his garden in the autumn of 2008. The title references 1967 Robert Morris’ essay ‘A Method for Sorting Cows’. The essay is a descriptive text attempting to communicate the complexities of moving cattle. The text vividly demarcates the spaces, orientation and movements required to complete the task, but in doing so presents the inadequacy of writing to disclose the intuitive experiences of the farm-workers.
