Patagonian Ice Fields
Video | hdv | color | 6'24'' | Argentina / Germany | 2020
Video installation 2020 As everything stopped and the lockdown extended all over the planet, I dedicated myself to create new original music and review some historical works, with material that had been left out of the initial postproduction of the videos. In this way I approached again to the expedition in the Patagonian Ice Fields, a project that I made in collaboration with members of a rescue mountain team. Patagonia is dramatically affected by climate change and global warming. The glaciers are disappearing in front of our eyes. In this context, a group of persons find themselves lost in a labyrinth of ice. United and in solitude, they contemplate the collapse of their universe.
