In-progress (sound installation, animation)

A spatial sound installation of the calving of the world’s largest iceberg, called the B15. Using seismic data captured by glaciologists it invites an audience to listen to the mysterious world that cracks, shears, slides and trembles deep beneath glaciers and ice sheets. This work is under production through dialogues and conversations with Douglas MacAyeal and Julien Chaput and has been supported through a residency at the Cité internationale des arts, Paris.

What does the underside of a map look like? What lies behind it? This animation experiments with a radar-sensed point cloud using techniques in the geophysical sciences that are used for speculating upon past morphologies of a topography.

2018 (multi-channel video )

From probability mapping to terrain analysis, this video installation explores the politics of cloud infrastructures, pixel resolutions, point-cloud data, and the images produced by remote sensing. It plays with the aesthetics of the term ‘landscape’  from a sensory experience to a computable surface and the strange entanglement between aesthetics and objectivity. It features a sound collaboration with Antoni Rayzhekov.

Aerial and satellite imagery reveals complicated relationships between military infrastructure and archaeological cultural heritage.  What might be the continuing historical importance of these sites? Remote sensing analysis reveals a different story through contested infrastuctures: roads, culverts, agriculture and archaeological sites. Developed in consultation with Center for Ancient and Middle Eastern Landscapes, University of Chicago.

This film is a foray into the dense, damp world of an aquaponics farming system  in the south of Chicago. Set in the basement of a former slaughterhouse and meatpacking facility, the film conveys the surreal and unexpected beauty of a ‘natural’ world that grows out of a fully fabricated system—from its artificial lighting to its industrial materials that replace the traditional concepts of sun, soil, land, and earth.  The film grapples with how agriculture and the concept of ‘cultivation’ always entails some form of ‘craft’ and ‘design’.

The South Side of Chicago has been subject to varying notions of what “community” means in its history, starting from the sociological mapping exercises by the Chicago School of Sociology in the late 1920s to current-day gentrification West of Garfield Park.  A series of map-making interviews with locals living and working next to the Arts Block led to this short ethnographic video. Each participant drew a map of the Arts Block and the surrounding neighbourhood, showing what kinds of interventions they would like to propose in the space: how does the term ‘community’ both empower and divide people?

Following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, five littoral countries posture to control Caspian Sea oil extraction rights. The Caspian is considered a 'special inland sea', a strategic maritime designation enabling ownership of the sea floor and the associated resources below. Overlapping claims between, Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Iran contribute to an accelerated militarization of the sea. Recent joint military drills between Iran and Russia, simulating defense of oil fields, caught the attention of neighboring countries, the international oil companies who own extraction rights and the governments that back them. More a disputed land than a body of water, the weaponized Caspian represents a territory of increasing convergence between regional politics, intercontinental infrastructure and global energy.
