Barents (mare incognitum)

A view of the Barents Sea is slowly rotating: up becomes down, east becomes west. Invisible borders and thresholds, and the potential for disaster inherent in the ocean. Filmed at the border between Norway and Russia, pointing towards the North Pole, using a custom built orbital camera. Orbital is based on an idea of exploring spaces and landscapes using a video camera that slowly rotates around its own axis, and captures the world that revolves around it.

Commissioned for the Dark Ecology journey end of November 2015, presented in Nikel, Russia.

Presented at EYE filmmuseum in Amsterdam in December 2015 in parallell to the Paris climate talks.

On January 23rd 2016 it was shown as part of Klimafestivalen 112 in Oslo

Shown at HC Gilje solo exhibition at Kristiansand Kunsthall aug-oct 2016
