1. Search Film (2015, HD, 22 minutes) follows the artist's father, the biologist Dr. Mick Marquiss as he tracks goshawks, an elusive bird of prey, in rural north east Scotland. The film expands into a broader conversation on the nature of searching in a variety of contexts, comparing innate foraging behaviour with shopping and browsing databases.

    Two evolutionary biologists, Niles Eldredge and Armand Marie Leroi consider the analogies and differences between the cultural and the biological realms, comparing the history of life within the fossil record with the evolution of pop music. Marquiss draws on Eldredge’s pattern of evolution (Punctuated Equilibria) as a cue for image-making processes and editing structures to transpose scientific enquiry into cultural production.
