Desert.0916 consists of a set of film fragments and a fictional script for voice-over. The fragments are extractions from film works at the center of my research. My research revolves around the position landscape occupies in film as opposed to its origin in the depiction of scenery. For this conference I propose to elaborate on a form of script writing that predominately describes the visualization of landscape. These are ‘scenic notes’ which, once interpreted through film, provide the locational and atmospherical structure of a film. The presentation will go back and forth between viewing film fragments, reading script and listening in on voice-over.
