The collaborative work of Charles Danby & Rob Smith is based on a mutual interest in site and land. In Parallel Cipher, for example, a two screen video work explores a forest by night, lit only by occasional camera flashes. Lighting in the gallery responds to the eerie environment on screen, making the urban space echo the natural one.
