This 2-channel video piece reflects on the fact that our relationship with and representation of the world is always a negotiation. It is an attempt to orient ourselves within a space and within its pre-established parameters. Such parameters might refer to the physical constraints of space or time, and often paradoxically result in a disconnection, rather than a connection with landscape. Even what we call the wilderness usually comes with a tourist architecture of trails, hand-rails and designated viewpoints from which to begin our negotiation with those places.
