"As a pure example of 'landscape video' in Partridge's output, Interrun is in the larger tradition of landscape art - and on the grand scale. It also shares the radical revisioning of landscape pioneered by such structural filmmakers as Chris Wrelsby and William Raban, but is more specifically preceded by a Partridge-Cunningham landscape video made with singer and performer Mary Phillips, Vide Voce, 1986. Coincidentally, structuralist like Raban and Welsby also questioned the ecological and political aspects of landscape in their films of the 1980's and thereby took their earlier work beyond their original goal of pure observation. Similarly, this videowall offers an 'eye-scaping' challenge to the ideology of neutral vision."
