"The perils of isolation and climate instability meet in this split screen/2 channel video set against the backdrop of a volcanic red rock quarry in southern Iceland. Caught in an extreme, inhospitable landscape, a bereaved woman finds herself enveloped in a swath of black fabric. The intensity of her stillness combines with a stark sound score to form a slowly shifting visual tableaux that explores the terrain where inner and outer realities collide."
