Title/: Boundless Sediments, 2020, 3:12

 

Description: 

 

Boundless Sediments is a video installation centered on the moving-shaking animacy of the Earth. The common space of ground, the shared layer of the Earth’s surface, has been a crucial topic in measuring and anticipating the warming planet. A void in conversations surrounding the anthropocene or climate change is the lack of discussion of the colonial violences of extraction that are responsible. Colonial logics of measuring, marking and maiming the landscape are dangerous logics. The animate and responsive way that the earth pushes back. The the land shakes and shifts despite human drawn borders. Boundless Sediments is a two-channel video that uses poetry, ephemeral performance and hand-drawn animation to reimagine our relationship with this pale blue dot.

These are digital artefacts and outputs from a web piece situated at surfacecollider.net/reactor 

The work is an extension of my current research, which pivots around the point at which code becomes image. Within the work the user/viewer sees their isolated image cast within a navigational 3-dimensional digital space against a backdrop of digital sounds and images. As we zoom, rotate and pan around the work, we become caught in an ambient state, where the act of looking becomes proliferated, and we are offered the opportunity to see ourselves - as subjects - within a distant alien space.
