A short audiovisual work from the Mediterranean views series. I screened this piece at Rhizome a few weeks ago.
1. A Distant Horizon by Ryan Marino
Remote landscapes contain fragments of strata and sediment suggesting an existence marked by time not man. A vibrant sun illuminates the contours of the land providing a natural show of light and shadow play. “We are lost between the abyss within us and the boundless horizons outside us.” – Robert Smithson
