Avalanche (2009)

1 hour (excerpt)Single channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Avalanche is an infinite video loop that encapsulates the sublime magnitude, awe and beauty of a single white wall of ice and snow enveloping everything in its path. The accompanying sound track composed of filtered white noise, low frequency sine wave pulses and extended harmonic tones is synchronized to each loop. The work itself is an exploration of viewer/listener experience where the immersive repetition of imagery and sound seeks to abstract and re-contextualize the naturally occurring phenomena.
