Moving into darkness - contraction 

2019

Video, 8 min running time looped

I believe an artist book has the potential to be more than just its title and physical make-up, it has the capacity to materially contain a complete physical environment, embodied, and formed through emergent and successive stages in its development.

 

80° North holds memory of its conception as an idea in the high Arctic, it's expansion as a drawing of the Arctic ice-cap, its contraction through a performance and its reformation into a book through time and more-than-human processes. 

 

Paper is born in water and requires the expulsion of water for its existence, beginning as a liquid before transforming into a desert, always thirsty for the water of its birth.
