1. DESERT TOMB (Atacama, Chile )
    The gravity of reality, grave of dreams.

    Next to the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, one of the driest places on the planet.
    Desert Tomb imagery was shot in and around clay cliffs on the edge of the central Atacama where rainfall is a rarity, but when it does, it storms, sculpts the barren hills and floods the desert fringe with silt & mud that the following drought dries and cracks into a deep mosaic of salt encrusted red earth, silent & haunting.
    (During the Pinochet regime, Atacama desert became a cemetery for bone fragments of the 'disappeared')

    A single channel video. One in a triad of works made in an isolated gorge in the Valle de Luna region of the Atacama desert, northern Chile.

  2. Camera kinetics, a polyphony of driest and highest, bleak and beautiful, empty yet full, endless yet finite – a warp & weft of fragile cycles from a bike in the Atacama desert.
