Two channel video installation, 11’30’’

A snow depth sensor looks into empty space for extended periods of time, even when snow is absent. Through the lens of this sensor’s observation, Dear Snow poses the question: What does the camera observe during these prolonged moments when no subject is present?

The exploration is delineated into two channels. The first channel concentrates on the physical movement required to detect a subject through the sensor, while the second channel focuses on the state of observation, even in the absence of a valid subject. The work looks into the physical movement and state of the Snow depth sensor itself, beyond its functional aspects.
