Keir Brisbane-Langsdon

MA Moving Image and Sound

Keir is a writer and filmmaker. The themes that are of primary importance in his work are audience responsibility, and, as a practicing Buddhist, he is crucially interested in the significance of art in the spiritual life and the role of myth. Much of his work finds its roots in setting up conditions in which an audience are confronted with multiple-screens, multiple texts and therefore multiple avenues of engagement. He is interested in what questions arise out of this process – What truly is the purpose of art? To what extent do the audience’s efforts and engagement with art form their experience, and to what ends? With these questions in mind, Keir is deeply concerned with whether art leads to freedom of the heart and mind or whether it is merely consoling distraction.

Myth also has a profound impact on his practice – Keir is keen to release the realm of myth from it’s limited role in, what he feels is, a rationalistic, materialistic modern climate – and realize it as a form that is a gateway to liberation.
