Landscape, is best presented as an installation piece. It is a mapping of a snow covered field abstracted to the point where the viewer does not know where or what they are looking at. This leaves the viewer with a scene of isolation, voice and cold.
The video was made by taping a Hi8 Camera onto the blade of a hockey stick, pointing the camera only about a foot off the ground, and mapping the field. The result is a half in, half out of focus view of the white ground as it moves rapidly by set to the sound of a computer generated wind.
