Inspired by 17th-century naturalist Robert Boyle, David Gatten took 14 years to collect and arrange his film into its current form with 'experiments and considerations touching colours' as its leitmotiv. The exceptional shots reveal how beautifully light manifests itself as colour and have been composed into a formal montage in accordance with the structure of a Petrarchan sonnet. An erudite, aesthetic work seemingly from another era.
