Underscape is a video shot with an underwater viewing system – a camera device used when ice fishing to locate fish. This camera is be plunged through an opening in the ice of the frozen lake and floats close to the under surface of the ice.
"Shot in the icy water beneath a lake’s frozen surface with an underwater viewing system normally used to locate fish, it depicts an enigmatic underwater world. The top of the moving image is light, almost heavenly, as sunlight permeates the ice and illuminates some of the underworld, leaving the lower part of the image a dark, cloudy and ambiguous area. It moves slowly, and has been edited in a manner that suggests choreography. "
