Shot while on a year long artist's residency at HEIMA in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland.
During my residency I was exploring notions of our perception of reality, the nature of light, changing states of matter, the underlying structure of the landscape and our connection to the cosmos. I have been investigating optics and the distortion of our percieved environment.
This video depicts the basaltic columns of Reynisfjara, a black beach on the south coast of Iceland close to the town of Vik. The video has very little editing and all the optical effects you see are in camera.
