Landscape for Fire

McCall, Anthony
"Landscape for Fire II" was performed to a small audience at dusk on August 27, 1973 on a disused airfield in North Weald. The execution of the tasks required to realise the performance and the filming of those actions, took place simultaneously and I made no attempt to separate the two, or to hide the processes of filming from the processes of performing.
