image: video still

A large, black, rock-like object is lying in a dark oily liquid being partly overwashed by it; or − surprisingly − rather it is floating as it is moving back and forth. It is the negative video footage of an iceberg in the surge, caught near the shore. By the inversion of colours alone, an impression of slow motion as well as a whole variety of associations is induced.

The video was created during an artist residency at the Pouch Cove Foundation, Newfoundland, Canada.
