STONEMAP (2004) is a continuous, slow and fast motion, wide-angle camera exploration of the Garwood and Taylor Dry Valleys in Antarctica, the camera zooming in and around wind sculpted ventifacts and boulders, as if living objects.
The installation involves two video screens situated opposite each other, on opposite walls of a viewing space, the audio tracks comprising field recording & sound from an invented instrument.
The 3rd screen – StoneGrind – is displayed on a small size LCD (approx 300mm wide) at floor level; screen horizontal, with sound from the screen .
Note, this is a 3 in 1 screen sampler only, of a three screen installation (16' looped).
A stand-alone or one of 8 works in the installation series, Polar Projects. (for more info on PP visit sonicsfromscratch.co.nz).
STONE MAP is ideally exhibited in context of a collection of drawings titled ROCK RECORDS.
