The Ship at the Bottom of the Mountain was made using a collage of multiple layers of video and sound, creating a seamless sense of the passage of time. It opens with the water and sky being heavily trafficked by helicopters, planes and boats, but as the night settles, there’s a sense of calm. The exaggerated, majestic mountains tower over the city, making civilization appear small in comparison.

As part of the Lind Prize, the piece was commissioned by The Polygon Gallery for the gallery’s inaugural show N. Vancouver.
