Meditation On A Landscape

“Mountains, according to the angle of view, the season, the time of day, the beholder's frame of mind, or any one thing, can effectively change their appearance. Thus, it is essential to recognize that we can never know more than one side, one small aspect of a mountain.”

(Haruki Murakami, ‘A Wild Sheep Chase’)


Meditation On A Landscape is a video work that reflects on the inherent qualities of a landscape, and how they interact with us in different emotional ways as we move through and past them. Inspired by a personal journey across several borders, along rivers and mountains, in search of a sense of tranquility and a clearer view of self, the work came together as a fluid organism made of sound and image. An organism consisting of short natural impressions, constantly transforming themselves into something new, somewhere between abstraction and figuration. A work about holding on and letting go.
