A multi-channel video installation projected onto the gallery’s walls and accompanied by an original soundtrack, BLUE DESERT surrounds the observer with spectacular views of Antarctica’s vast, haunting, and fragile landscape. More akin to a moving painting or chapel of frescos than to a nature documentary, the project builds a dramatic environment that encourages audiences to contemplate and meditate upon the fleeting light, grand scale, and striking majesty of this distant and largely uninhabited part of the earth. While any depiction of the Antarctic is, in some sense, futile — an attempt to represent the unrepresentable — BLUE DESERT, shot during a three week expedition to Antarctica using high-resolution cameras and audio equipment, offers one rendering of a world that is at once overwhelming and alien, deeply felt and unfathomable, immediate and unreachable.
