When a Circle Meets the Sky

Chan Ho-choi Carla (Hong Kong)

It is a video installation reflecting on the intriguing relationships among nature, technology and human agency. Shot in Mojave Desert, USA (2012) and Melchsee-Frutt mountain, Switzerland (2016), the video is created by a custom-made weathervane capturing reflections of a mirror determined by wind speed and direction on location. Nature shoots a film with no human interaction and presence.

Artist’s Statement

Nature shoots a film with no human interaction and presence, intensifying the isolation of the remote desert while at the same time complicating our expected relationships among nature, technology and human participation in the process of artistic creation.
