Pieces of time that we taped on the hills
DV / 8min55 / 2014
split-screen film (video & sound installation)
photography & direction: Stéphane Charpentier
editing & co-direction: Patrick Andrew Boivin
sound design: Alyssa Moxley
Over ten days, the artists collected footage of the shifting textures of the olive groves outside
the village of Selassia in the south of Greece. The variations of perspective in the split screen
views of the landscape suggest a state of contemplation and an erasure of human presence, through
the simultaneous observation of panorama and detail, long and short term.
Echoing the dualism of the split screen and the placement of the observer asa subjective filter,
the sound is edited to reflect an inward experience of the environment;
space is interior and exterior, real and imagined.
The project was created during the Koumaria Residency in October 2014
