This work explores two types of landscapes: one, pertaining to the environment, and the second, to the body. The film is recorded using a PXL2000 – a toy camcorder by Fisher Price. The visual limitation of the pixilated imagery resembles 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 chirping birds and barking dogs can be faintly heard in the audio. The landscape becomes internal and external to the subject as its subsumed and afloat in a body of water.
Through the visual blurring of the image, the slow and soft voice, and the background crackling noise of the camera as it records, viewers are guided into a state of contemplation through the difficulty of visualization to construct and animate a landscape, that is free of the spatio-temporal conditions of the ‘here’ and ‘now’.
