Ruru (2011)

2 min 59 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Silent

"'Ruru', a silent work, captures the hypnotic gaze of an owl as it surveys its habitat with the evident skill of all-seeing. Nocturnal by nature and rarely seen other than as a fleeting shadow, 'Ruru' allows access to the usually veiled concealment of night."
