video still from elegy, 2018, HD video, 16mm and Super-8 film transferred to video, sound, 22:23 min

elegy was made during a process of frequent observation of the Yukon River near Dawson City over two winters. As temperatures dropped below minus 25° C, plumes of ice fog rose from an open channel of water and shrouded the river. The pace of the video echoes the pace of these slow atmospheric events. In a series of long camera shots, elegy examines how moving images of near-stillness present an unfolding of time, time that is perceived in reference to natural processes.
