MOUNTAIN IN SHADOW
HD / 16:9 / color / 14´ / 2012
Contemplative look toward the snowy mountain and skiers activity on it.
The vastness of space contrasts with the insignificant that people looks like, almost invisible by distance. Starting from the white snow, the image of the film becomes increasingly darker, transforming the space into something unreal, dreamlike and spectral. Also approaching its appearance to the image of a model artificially illuminated. Where skiers are merely points in the distance, sliding in an hypnotic movement. Also the image is flattened at times, losing all deep in search of a pictorial abstraction. This play with the perception of the scales, where the immensity of the mountain ends muddling up with the vision of a microscope, will go forward with the development of the film. This treatment also allows landscape viewing as a tactile experience: emphasizing the snow texture, confusing its matter and the space dimensions. Experiencing landscape image as something tangible: a tactil vision.
But finally, the view that we propose is identified in some way, with a possible view of the mountain from the summit, who observe men sliding by its mountainsides, like insects on the skin of an animal.
