Time Travel Through Water
Sound by Justin King, 2015, 4:01 minutes

This video combines three bodies of water (in Vietnam, Tennessee, and Louisiana), that I traveled through in 2013 and 2014. By combining these three location, I allow myself to be in three places at the same time, a physical impossibility, but one that happens in our minds and bodies recurringly. The distortions of each section are created by mapping the time and luminance information from the previous section onto the following one, causing sections of the image to  skip or drag behind in time

Memo to William Reed (re: Hyperborea)
sound Chris Colthart, 2014, 4:20 minutes

Produced while on the Arctic Circle Expedition residency and shown as a group in the exhibition “Monotonic Surfaces: An Account of the Arctic Regions,” Colthart’s hypnotic drone put me in the meditative, transportive state I experienced on the voyage, falling into worlds and dimensions long hidden. The video is a view from within the hollow earth. William Reed was an 19th century philosopher who theorized that the Earth was hollow, with holes to the core at the North and South Poles.

Stand By Me
sound by Careful (Eric Lindley), 2013, 2:09 minutes

The ecstatic feeling of the 24hour sun is tempered by the fragility of the Arctic landscape. Lindley’s gossamer interpretation of Stand By Me captured these emotions perfectly, and the video moves towards the ever shifting landscape, physical and emotional, of Svalbard. Produced while on the Arctic Circle Expedition residency and shown as a group in the exhibition “Monotonic Surfaces: An Account of the Arctic Regions.”
