Echo-Maker has been devised by artist and film maker Sean Harris, working in collaboration with Somerset Art Works and the Great Crane Project. It takes its title from the English translation of 'Baswenaazhi', the Ojibwe Indian crane clan, which refers to the piercing call of this charismatic and archetypal bird, audible once more in our own landscape as at dusk it rebounds around West Sedgemoor, preferred winter roost of Somerset's reintroduced crane population.
The project constitutes a response to a year spent exploring both the landscape and rural communities past and present of the Somerset Levels and Moors — and, not least, becoming acquainted with the cranes themselves, now re-established after a centuries-long absence.
Using moving image and sound as core components, Echo-Maker presents narratives of time, change, adaptability and resilience. Through the adoption of twenty-first century media, it seeks to amplify deeper seated and already-present senses of both joy in being a part of the land and respect for it as a precious — and finite — entity that may yet be irreversibly damaged.
