This work explores two types of landscapes: one, pertaining to the environment, and the second, to the body. The two parts are shot using a kids toy camera from the 1990s, which has visual limitation, giving pixilated visual imagery, and often blurring the image completely. The visual representation begins to resemble microscopic structures that are invisible to the eye. In the video, the narrator describes the scenery surrounding the Laurentian mountains in southern Quebec on a hot summer day in mid-July. The sound of birds and the barking of dogs can be faintly heard in the background. The landscape becomes internal and external to the subject as its subsumed by the body as it floats in a body of water.
Through the visual blurring of the image, the slow and soft voice, and the background noise of the camera as it records, viewers are guided into a state of contemplation through the difficulty of visualization to construct and animate the landscape, that is free of the spatio-temporal conditions of the ‘here’.
