Excerpt from Landscapes without further meaning

Landscapes without further meaning


split-screen video; 3 minutes 20 seconds; exhibited in Flywheel at York Quay Gallery, Toronto, 2003

The title is a quote from Werner Herzog as he describes an early work. The irony is that none of his work uses landscape without further meaning. I have paired video clips of different landscapes to visually riff off each other, allowing subtle references and meaning to come through.
