An ode to an island that for many years lay forgotten in the South Atlantic Ocean. A cinematic memory journey to a place that feels as familiar as it does outlandish.

 

SCOUT - Loop installation

A small but dedicated team of wildlife scouts are faced with the near impossible task of patrolling one of the largest national wildlife parks in Africa. Each day they cross huge swathes of land hunting for poachers, unknown menaces who hardly leave a trace. In this unfamiliar world dialogue is for the most part absent. Words are replaced by murmurs, the hypnotic sound of footsteps in the long grass and the “silence” of the African Bush.  As time passes the scouts become immersed and part of a landscape where stalking dominates life.
