Writing and research are an integral part of Jeffrey Langille’s working process, which includes video, film, and photography. His film and video work investigates the capacity of cameras to register events differently from human perception and to convey the slow time of many occurrences. His work involves using landscape stillness as a theatre for the arrival of change, whether human, geologic, or atmospheric.
Langille holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Simon Fraser University, a BA in History and Art History from Carleton University, and a Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia. He has screened work in Canada and internationally, has received scholarships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the B.C. Arts Council, and was the recipient of a Yukon Advanced Artist Award. His review article on the early work of British experimental filmmaker John Woodman appeared in an issue of MIRAJ (Moving Image Review and Art Journal). He writes experimental poetry occasionally, and has written exhibition brochure texts for the ODD Gallery in Dawson City.
