Hard To Tell At This Distance

Projects

Using found footage, this piece shows the spectacular view from the top of a mountain at the end of a Norwegian cable car journey. Captured by persons unknown using the now obsolete Video-8 format, the footage has been digitised and re-edited, leaving the unstable camerawork and prosaic voiceover of the original director intact. This piece lets us sample borrowed memories, inciting fond recollection of a place we may never have visited.
