The Weight of one Mountain
The Weight of One Mountain is a split-channel view of a mountain, cut out of its landscape and floating in a limbo. The left channel shows the mountain in detail, while the right shows it in full. The two channels are spinning in sync, but drift apart, exposing their contrived nature, and utilizing the dual-perspective. A writing, which sprawls across the screen, accompanies the video, prompting the viewer to think of the mountain as a concept rather than as a finite object. The audio mirrors the nebulous themes, presenting uncertain but vaguely tactile sounds, driving home the abstract nature of the piece while referencing the ecosystem of a mountain. The piece expresses a disconnection between elements, and shows how two things that begin similarly grow to become substantially different.
