FLUT / FLOOD

visual concept

In july 2018, an iceberg stranded near the coastal village of Innaarsuit

(full story: visitgreenland.com).

Intrigued by photographs and videos of the event, I began to randomly collect more footage and articles about icebergs, calving glaciers and melting ice. The collection inspired a visual concept and a story which I then intended to turn into my third shortfilm eventually.   

However, at the moment I'm still exploring the visual world created by the combination of live-action and found footage with hand-drawn and cutout animation elements on a multiplane animationstand. The resulting images are multi-layered and full of obscurities. They inspire musings on ongoing processes of significant change that are intangible due to their sheer dimensions and yet have a fundamental impact on our environment as well as on our own lives.

In 2019 I got the chance to work on FLUT / FLOOD on the island of Örö (FI) via the ÖRES Örö island residency programme and in 2022 some of the images I created there were part of theÖRES summer exhibiton. Thank you, ÖRES!
