Hold. Test. Empty. Remove. Repeat.

‘Hold. Test. Empty. Remove. Repeat’ is a short film produced by Ciara Healy in collaboration with visual artist Adam Stead, University of Reading. The film looks at our relationship with agriculture and place and is the result of a 2-year correspondence between Ciara Healy & Adam Stead. Adam Stead’s letters are concerned with the socio-political and socio-ecological impacts of increased industrialisation and consumerism on agriculture within rural communities in Britain and Ireland. He reflects upon his relationship with the farm he grew up on and its future. Ciara Healy’s letters draw attention to the mythologies, histories and ecologies of Place and the impact they have on our sense of belonging. Their visual dialogue documents how they attend to these diverse ecological, agricultural and environmental ways of knowing.
