Descriptions and Sketches of Some Remarkable Oaks
Jacob Cartwright, Nick Jordan and Stephen McNeilly
Single screen video, 16:40 mins, 2007

A collaborative film which depicts three protagonists (the artists themselves) climbing, measuring, photographing and documenting some aged or dead oak trees, revealed in birch-coppiced clearings of Sherwood Forest. The soundtrack uses three mechanical voices, each with a different pitch, reading William Cowper’s epic unfinished poem Yardley Oak, written in 1791. Cowper presents the twisted and ancient oak as a totemic monument to a shared English identity, through which the inevitability of time's dissolution and decay is brought home to roost
