In this captivating two-part documentary, American artist Roger Feldman walks us through his process of creating the stonework installation piece ekko, which now exists within the land of the historic Freswick Castle in Scotland. Completed in 2012, this site-specific work functions as a contemporary relic, inviting visitors of the castle to move in and around the piece, thus experiencing sights and sounds of the natural environment in a completely unique—and perhaps mystical—way. To avoid saying too much, we will end our description here and let you experience the artist himself through these documentaries, compliments of Roger Feldman and Far North Film. The films are directed and filmed by Toby Watts; edited by Fionn Watts; and scored by Jeff Johnson.
