This site is the 'modular' version of Chris Dooks' ambitious Year of Natural Scotland 2013 hour-long film Tiny Geographies - a project managed by Woodend Barn in Banchory, Aberdeenshire as part of the Atomic Doric season of commissioned works by artists and musicians. Click the pics!

A special limited Blu-Ray edition is available in the shop. The film is edited as one long feature in this high bit-rate blu-ray and DVD. This is the same version that plays at the film's premier at Woodend Barn on November 29th. Click on the Atomic Doric link above.

The experimental philosophy of the work is to ascertain to what degree could diverse audiovisual footage be gathered from several accessible environments just a few square metres in size. These 'tiny' geographies were made to see if there was any advantage to being unable to scale a 'Munro' or even a small hill - and try and make the best of out limited energy. Dooks employs the technology as friend of the 'exhausted practitioner' to spy, scope-out and mine the environment without touching it - or as Chris says 'the only thing I like to shoot a deer with, is a Nikon lens.'
