HD Video, 2011
Video work in collaboration with Markus Lantto. A remote and unidentified landscape slowly sweeps in front of the camera while we hear the word exchange between the two artists. The conversation reflects on ideas of journey, maps, dislocation and the difficulty in the attempt to carry out a long distance dialogue.
” I remember being transfixed by the first lander image to show the horizon of Mars. This was not an alien world, I thought. There were rocks and sand drifts and a distant eminence, as natural and unselfconscious as any landscape on Earth. Forever after, Mars would be a place.”
