Lake Levels (Lake Mackintosh)
2010, multi-screen video, each 1152x2048, indefinite duration, no sound (excerpt).

From a body of work exploring environmental flow. Shot on a flooded lake on the West Coast of Tasmania. The camera is situated at the water's surface giving a view both above and below water, rotated 90° to extend the field of view vertically. It drifts, pulled in the direction of the original river. The single, durational shot is presented across multiple screens (about 20 minutes each, not of equal duration, looped at a 'wipe to black') evoking a display of measurement.
