Hart to Heart: reflection/réflexions

Interactive stereo 3D video installation


In an embattled northern watershed, a river takes us on a journey through human nature, wild nature, and leads us to… ourselves.

An interactive stereo 3D video installation inspired by a journey on the Hart River in the Yukon’s Peel watershed. In this place where human values in the land overlap and divide us, this journey ignites a question for urban and industrial culture:


how will we transcend our duality with the earth?


Hart to Heart: reflections is the first sketch created in 2015 in a series of visual, virtually tactile, and auditory meditations on the land and our relationship with it as an urban and industrial culture. Remote Sensibility VIII: the ecology of perception is the next iteration in development, and will incorporate the land, visual art and performance in multi-screen installation. Exhibition is scheduled at Yukon Arts Centre in December, 2019.


Directed, filmed and edited by marten berkman

Interactive design by Baptiste Bohelay

Sound design by Jordy Walker

A commissioned project for the 30th anniversary of the Yukon Film Society, made possible by the Canada Council for the Arts and Government of Yukon.
