Rasvasaari in Film/Video

This piece is a meditation on the changing environment of Lake Mekri in Karelian Finland. During the peak of the perpetual summer sun, footage of the reflection of a small island offshore was collected every day for 21 days as wind currents and the sky changed at all times of day and night from a single vantage point. Cropping the island itself out of the shot, what remained was constantly shifting intersections of horizontal and vertical line and form in the water, creating subtle and sensuous visual abstractions.    HDV/16:9
