This exhibition uses material gathered from a research trip to Nevada, awarded by Boise Travel Scholarship at Slade School of Fine Art in 2017. Combining film and sculpture, the installation uses imagery and research from Las Vegas, Death Valley desert and Berlin-State national park. A tour guide, a tourist and a palaeontologist travel through these shape-shifting landscapes. Through parallel narratives, and with the Shonisaurus as their orbit, we discover different kinds of sediments: geological, economical and fictional. Continuing an attempt to make video feel like a show, this installation incorporates sculpture, animation, sound, text and video.
