“By Land and Water” is a live audiovisual performance by Geronimo Inutiq with ambient electronic music, and manipulated video footage. Taking us across northern Ontario roads and waterways, and following the road beyond other provinces – video segments are slowed down, manipulated, and rearranged to form an abstract visual narrative, with the countryside as the main focus of reflection. Ethereal melodies, drones, and other audio sources create further means of contemplation on ideas of travel, nature, solitude – and connectedness to the environment and country we live with.
