Stromboli appears briefly, as though lifted by a flash from out of the darkness into which it once again disappears. We then approach the islands. In their cinematic representation, movement and motionlessness collide as do the materiality of Super8 and video.The landscape is studied as a sensual experience, but also as an aesthetic object of representation.

The static and strictly framed Super8 recordings of the volcano, the sea, and the island, construct a sublime beauty in accordance with conventions of landscape painting. The turbulent video recordings, on the contrary, play with an apparent directness, with a subjective gaze and the physicality of the images. These contradictory views of a given topography are tied into a strictly metric structure - the subjective and fascinating cartography of the landscape arises from their confrontation and association.
