commissioned for the group exhibition Senses of Place during the LOOP Barcelona Video Art Fair and Festival

A single, unedited, wide-angle shot of the edge of a forest, this video contains monaural audio of the sound of a person walking from the left to the right of the screen. The visual occlusion of the forest combined with audio whose close-mic’d detail provides no cues for locating the position of the walker. The viewer is forced to search, knowing that there must be a connection between hearing and sight, but is forced to rely on scanning the video carefully in search for alternative clues as to location of the sound source.
