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

From a body of work exploring environmental flow, shot on a flooded lake on the West Coast of Tasmania. The camera was 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 presented across multiple screens evokes a display of measurement.
