S16mm Film on DVD

5 min



The film features a monochrome landscape of sea and islands; a landscape where man exploits nature reserves and nature acts within its equilibrium.

Certain Degrees Below was developed in 2007, on the Western coast of Norway where the oil tanker Server was shipwrecked 12th January 2007 and 370 tons oil and diesel spilled. Due to the storm when the shipwreck took place, the oil spread quickly along the coast, and affected the bird reservoir on the island of Herdla. The moving image explores the affected coast and the constant reminder of the ecological impact of man’s exploitation of nature reserves.
