In his video work, Jeffrey Langille considers 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. Writing and research are an integral part of his working process, which includes video, film, and photography.
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, and has received scholarships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the B.C. Arts Council. He recently wrote a review article on the early work of British experimental filmmaker John Woodman for the current issue of MIRAJ (Moving Image Review and Art Journal).
