Blue Desert - Towards Antarctica/Geoff Pingree and...

Presented by Granary Arts at Granary Arts

A multi-channel video installation projected onto two walls with sound, Blue Desert surrounds the viewer with high-resolution views of Antarctica’s vast, haunting, and fragile landscape. More akin to a moving painting or chapel of frescos than to a nature documentary, the project builds a dramatic environment that encourages audiences to contemplate and meditate upon the fleeting light, grand scale, and striking majesty of this distant and largely uninhabited part of the earth. While any attempt to depict the Antarctic is, in some sense, futile—an exercise in representing the unrepresentable — Blue Desert, shot during a three week expedition to Antarctica, offers one rendering of a world both overwhelming and alien, deeply felt and unfathomable, immediate and unreachable.
