1. Solace
    a soap film apparatus

    Solace is a cinematic installation that investigates the mental process and physical activity of seeing. At regular intervals a handcrafted apparatus creates a monumental soap film as a spatial intervention. Through precise lighting the inner movement of the soap film is revealed, showing a turbulent choreography of iridescent color and fluid motion. As gravity slowly gets a hold of the membrane the viewer can be fascinated with the phenomenon, until inevitably the fragile film bursts.

  4. "In a landscape where nothing officially exists... absolutely anything becomes thinkable, and may consequently happen."

    -Reyner Banham, Scenes in America Deserta

    --

    “Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.”

    -Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

    Music: Godspeed You! Black Emperor :: Moya (Live at Cirque Royal, Brussels, 2012)
