Astali / Peirce
Horizont unfolds through a series of juxtapositions of objects and interventions, exposed by the pulsing light of a scanner beam as it glides across the picture plane.
Clips are sequenced to pan laterally as the light travels mechanically back and forth, illuminating an array of artifacts.
Horizont is equally an anthropological and poetic pursuit. Its source material reflects artistic and archivist impulses, drawn from the every day and engaging a range of themes which include ecology and destruction, history and digitization, violence, fertility, drugs, and economics.
