'Neve' is a 2018 work in development.
Photos from a Neve white-out (Fox Glacier, Aotearoa), cut in and out set to an ambient analogue sound scape and field recordings from the experience. Field recordings of water dripping (being collected from the melting icicles on the outside of the cabin for drinking water), the crackling radio on the wall (the only form of communication at this altitude), the gas burner boiling water, ice cracking and snow drifts coming away.
Poor weather and the eventual white-out left us stuck on the Neve for 3 days. The loss of orientation, the visual drop off and the intense cold and quiet. The space was reduced to small sounds and detail, the possibilities of the environment were unregulatable. You were forced into staying put.
In development for projection and 4 channel audio output.
