META INCOGNITA: SUMMER VARIATIONS
15 Sep – 10 Oct 2012
Meta Incognita is a time-lapsed video of over 500 still images captured by a public weather webcam in Kimmirut on Baffin Island, Canada. Taken between Summer Solstice 21 June and 8 August 2010, the images depict the southern view down the Kimmirut harbor.
The result is a fragmented vision of a landscape in constant motion, transformed by the changes in the weather. The work raises questions about representations of time, the photographic archive, surveillance and the documentary genre.
Meta Incognita: Summer Variations is just one element of Nunavut Lights , an ongoing multi-format collaborative project between artists David Bouchard, Bruno Lessard, Pierre Tremblay and audio composer Alex Geddie.
