Amphibious Trilogies

SWISH video art #1

This one-shot wonder was taken on the research vessel, called Prof. Molchanov, when on the Russian Arctic Floating University.
Location: Kola meridian in the Barents Sea, 25 June 2019

Marine scientists are trawling a device called ‘MANTA’ alongside of the research vessel. The aim is to capture micro-plastics in this region. My aim is to capture the movements of MANTA. I put my POV camera into the MANTA’s mouth to see what she sees.

Eye in mouth. Swishy. Hissy. Slippery. Speedy. In between the frames you might see the underwater world; gasses, valleys and mountain tops. You might encounter a tentacular creature, amphibiousness in character.
