The Invisibility of Huge Things, 2018
This project was held in Curonian Spit, a region separated by the baltic sea and Curonian Lagoon and between the territories of Lithuania and Russia. It is home to the highest moving (drifting) sand dunes in Europe and several ecological communities are present on the Spit, from its outer beaches to dune ridges, wetlands, meadows, and forests.
The research I developed there reports a fictional narrative about an inventor, known only by the initials T.H., who created a device capable of identifying large geographic areas susceptible to major oscillations and sudden changes in their original geological formation.
This argument served as an impetus for the production of imagery and textual material, mixing real documents with the creation of fictitious scientific devices. The fieldwork in this unique location made it possible to capture different environments and climates in a narrow space, causing an imprecision in the spatial and temporal aspect.
