IRRADIANT FIELD (HD, 10 min, 2016)

Irradiant Field 1.jpg

Mirroring sky and earth, solitary mechanical sentinels follow the sun, while metal grids rain in a parched California landscape. Irradiant Field is a visual and sonic portrait at the intersection of nature and machine - a desert mirage of light, wind, water, and metallic reflection.

"The film opens on a vast terrain of metal and light as innumerable panels slowly twist toward the sun. The image considers the symmetry and precision of the manmade against the distant backdrop of the “real” landscape, a distant hillside; the solar plant has transformed the beautiful California fields into something else, not simply a blighted mechanical site, but a hybrid landscape that harbors its own beauty." - Holly Willis
