Pilgrim Pond

Video by Madeleine Altmann
Music by Charlie Nieland

All filmed just below or at the surface of water, these three works present differing optical effects, and make different demands of the viewer. Originally a pyramidal installation, Pilgrim Pond, is a single channel video that was repeated across myriad monitors to form an underwater kaleidoscope. Reinterpreted as a single channel piece with music by Charlie Nieland. The shifting facets of color and lush ambient music immerse the viewer in an almost hallucinatory field of vision.

 

Drake's Island, ME

Shot with the Gopro underwater camera on Drake’s Island in Maine. See this video in 20th Century Fox's  movie ‘Unfinished Business’ starring Vince Vaughn. Look for it in the rave scene.
