TERRA INCOGNITA

by Ben RUSSELL
2002 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 10' 00

A pinhole film, a cheap robot voice, a makeshift history. An explorer's tale of the unknown part of the world.
Terra Incognita is a lensless film whose cloudy pinhole images create a memory of history. Ancient and modern explorer texts of Easter Island are garbled together by a computer narrator, resulting in a forever repeating narrative of discovery, colonialism, loss and departure.
