Glass Elevator

Film by Jackie Aldern

Thesis film by Jackie Aldern, remounted as an installation. 

An investigation of Aldern's personal landscapes surrounding the mountainscape of Indianhead Mountain in Borrego Springs, CA. 

The production design for this piece involved a meticulous recreation of the mountain-scape surrounding her hometown by following a topographical map from a recent geographical census. 

The installation which resulted involved conversations in personal landscapes between the lead artist and the collaborators involved, a collection of artists from different countries, in order to provide a soundscape to the film/installation, as well as a documentation of the construction/deconstruction of the mass of the mountain.
