Absence – Tacita Dean

Thinking about this subject I was reminded of Tacita Dean’s film Disappearance at Sea, inspired by the tragic story of Donald Crowhurst which is described earlier in this blog.  Dean’s film was a 16mm film of the St Abbs lighthouse and its’ beam searching out over the sea endlessly.  It’s quiet simplicity says all that is needed and more.
