3.20 min video, stereo sound, 2007
John Gillies’ exquisitely constructed black-and-white video Postscript (2007), is a three-minute cinematic meditation on Australian landscape that functions also – as its title suggests – as a postscript to Gillies’s notable 2006 piece Divide. Gillies’ work centers in its conceptual and formal architecture on the elaborate intersection that has existed between the cinema and video during the last forty-odd years.

Postscript, John Gillies' video installation reminds us of our epistemological footprint, showing the discarded pages of a book floating, absorbing into nature.
