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

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.
The ecstatic feeling of the 24-hour 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.

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