This video shows the basic timeline of the Boston Marathon Bombings (April 15-19, 2013). During just one week the United States experienced a great turmoil of emotions as trying to pinpoint the reasons why and who. The government, the media, and especially social media were trying to search for answers and all affected each other, similar to Newton's law of motion ("For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction").

The Unknown Fields Division is a nomadic design studio that ventures out on expeditions to the ends of the earth to bear witness to alternative worlds, alien landscapes, industrial ecologies and precarious wilderness.
For our Summer Expedition 2015 we map a landscape spectrum spanning rain soaked forests to parched flat earth as we blaze a trail from the Bolivian Amazon to the Atacama Desert. In the heart of Bolivia, we will bear witness to a site, which epitomizes a burgeoning new era of electric fuel. We chase the grey rush to Salar de Uyuni, where under ethereal inverted skies lies over half of the world’s reserves of Lithium. Buried here, beneath the mirror of the world’s largest salt flat, is a grey gold - a substance in every one of our pockets, in every gleaming device, and every electric car. Where a gear-shift in human technological development has rendered this landscape one of the most sought after on earth. This is the feeding ground of the new green energy revolution. If the future is electric then the future is here, lying in wait for the world. Our journey will take us to celebrated landscapes like these, the future of which is dictated by worlds beyond their spectacular horizons. From the salt flats we will drift through the Amazon, in search of the lost cities of the forest, and whispered tales of El Dorado, another gold rush long consumed by the trees. We climb to the top of the world, the highest city on the planet; the Bolivian capital of La Paz and we head down to the bed of a long lost sea; the Atacama desert. If the Bolivian salt flats are mirrors to the sky above then the Atacama is a mirror reflecting its possible future, for it is a site that has witnessed by hundreds of years of copper and nitrate mining. We will see this exhausted ground stripped bare and disappearing on the wind. From these dust clouds the Unknown Fields division of speculators, and prospectors will imagine the many futures of Bolivia’s charged ground. A ground of possibility, and potential, on the verge of change - a proving ground in a state of becoming.
Unknown Fields Winter 14 Expedition

CAL was filmed during a stormy winter season on the roads of Southern Iceland. The video depicts tension and calm where glitches substitute for a climax that never comes.
CAL pretends to be timeless, weird and -- at some point -- a place between reality and perception, an island looped in an island, a close and desaturated system that gets its only colour from error.
An aesthetic and psychological moment in time, recorded and distorted.
