Women at the Edge of the World (2016)

Interactive video installation using ofxFaceTracker

In narratives to do with exploration or remote areas, women traditionally have not featured strongly, despite often being part of communities that are "at the edge of the world". Using the archives of Vilhjalmur Stefansson, I created two short films. One shows a fictional account of a short journey in the Artic, the other is the same exploration with the women drawn back in.  However, the second film is only shown is the viewer engages and watches (triggered by ofxFaceTracker), mimicking the way that these narratives have to be searched for and found.
