Neve

"Neve considers the tourist, the interloper, the colonial agenda enacting its expectation and intention upon the land via the interruption of the whiteout. The view, the panorama, the pinnacle and other colonial ideas.

The Neve (the upper part of a mountain) is the immediate layer of a lengthy process, part of Te Moeka o Tuawe (The Bed of Tuawe), a layering of time, compression as a cycle, like an oscillation.

Likewise, the video builds and recedes, visibility comes and goes, the ambiguity of the composition parallels the natural process present in the glacier."
