This is one of nine videos documenting the impressions of my experiences in the Arctic during the summer of 2013. It was, to say too little, an otherworldly experience.

Made with dry ice applied to mic-ed metal, Sandy Gordon’s soundwork speaks to the wary, often violent inter-connectedness we have with polar environments. In the video, I sought to capture the steely chill, feedback loops and crisp stillness of the Arctic.

This is part of my series of videos shown as “Monotonic Surfaces: An Account of the Arctic Regions” at The Center for Strategic Art and Agriculture March 11 – April 15, 2014.
