Across the Mountain was made in collaboration with Maria Kubysh while participating in a thematic residency at The Banff Centre. It is a dual channel video of footage shot simultaneously while walking 'up the mountain'. The footage does not progress very far, as the artists become increasingly involved in the moment, as oriented by the camera, the sun, and each other. The video was edited to synch to 'real-time' – using the sound of birds, cars and the artists' conversation to link moments together.
Dual channel digital video with sound, 34:01 loop
