CARBON SKY
Canada / 14:45 / 2019 / English
During the in-between period of the 2017 record breaking forest fires and the 2018 record breaking forest fires, conditions were often ideal in the BC interior for filming at a fixed place with a fixed camera. I would often return to the exact same location time and time again. Sometimes five, ten, or twenty times over a period of days, weeks, and months.

The locations that sustained my fascination were more or less located in a geographical triangle from Kamloops to the east, Cache Creek to the west, and Spences Bridge to the south. My main focus was on the semi-deserts, deep valleys, and plateaus to define how I see the interactions of the natural and manufactured worlds, worlds brought into my perspective by the ever changing presence of shadow and light. While I was filming in these places I was never able to separate my imagination from the political, commercial and cultural impacts that influence these landscapes and it is these relationships that shaped what I saw.

Filmed by Kent Tate on location in the interior of British Columbia + a mysterious visitation by Buckminster Fuller. An early 20th Century electro magnetic coil appears briefly after his visit.
