Everything changes, some things happen faster (then it is too late because we weren’t looking where we were supposed to)

This artwork is a reference to time and place, filming the sunrise and sunset at both sides of New Zealand. It is looking at the current state of political affairs and choices the New Zealand Government has made in relation to giving consent for overseas oil companies, such as Anadarko to start drilling as soon as this summer.

We all enjoy nature, but seldom make the connection between environmental destruction and our responsibilities as members of society. Economic growth is the catch phrase throughout the developed world and the harsh realities of climate change are kept in the shadows. Environmental damage is considered an unfortunate but unavoidable consequence of progress.

My intention is to bring the natural landscape to the urban dweller via a recording of the landscape. What rights do indigenous and local communities have to determine access to their land by multinational corporations? And what role do individuals have to play in the complex relationships between corporations and communities, governments and the landscape?
