Fieldworks, 2000

Fieldworks made by Carlos Casas from 2000 until today

Fieldworks are a series of films, a part of an ongoing experiment with ambiental video and radio frequencies, a sort of landscape video notes I have been developing since 2000, with these works I try to capture the atmospheric qualities of a landscape through visual and audio field recordings captured on location. Using image and sound asa sort of spatial instrument, I am interested in short waves signals and VLF, their atmospheric qualities and sound, capturing the radio waves in each of the landscape I portray, allows me to grasp another dimension of it. A sort of enhanced perception. I am interested also in the asynchronous randomness of the relation between soundtrack and film. I see this work as a sort of post structural film, where documentary and experimental film manners meet.
