Saturday, December 1st, 2012, 21.00 Carlos Casas (E) SIBERIAN FIELDWORKS (FIELDWORKS#10) - Audiovisual Presentation SIBERIAN FIELDWORKS (FIELDWORKS#10) A selection of Fieldworks captured in location during 2006-2007 in Chukotka, Siberia,  Russian Federation Fieldworks are a series of films, a part of an ongoing experiment with ambiental video and radio frequencies, a sort of landscape video notes I have been developing since  2000, with these works I try to capture the atmospheric qualities of a landscape  through visual and audio field recordings captured on location. Using image and sound asa sort of spatial instrument, I am interested in short waves signals and VLF, their  atmospheric qualities and sound, capturing the radio waves in each of the landscape I portray, allows me to grasp another dimension of it. A sort of enhanced perception. I am interested also in the asynchronous randomness of the relation between soundtrack and film. I see this work as a sort of post structural film, where documentary and  experimental film manners meet.
