    Poor visibility, weather again unsettled today. Surreal rocks and riven lowlands, fog-shrouded valleys. Frightening depths and emptiness. Rarity of air is noticeable. What are you looking for in this hostile stretch?

    “Interim Camp” is a meditation about the pursuit of an idea; about obstacles, struggle, and failure along the way.

    The film follows an expedition into an abstract and surreally coloured arctic mountain scene, where the landscape shapes and surfaces are in constant transformation. We used a custom generative software tool to create motion sequences of drifting and constantly transforming surface structures. These image sequences served as scalar topographic height maps and were displaced into landscapes in a 3D application.

    This is a two minute excerpt from a 13-minute film.
