ANDY GRAYDON
Untitled (aina) | Berlin | 2008-9 | 26m 21s
super 8 film transferred to video | color | sound

A red flag marks a bomb testing site that stands before a volcanic mound; conveyor belts snake like lava flows as they excavate rocks for a new garbage dump; green waste is churned in an enormous blender. From windmills to observatories to guided tours, Untitled (Aina) captures the natural environment of the artist’s birthplace on the islands of Hawaii in what is perhaps its pure state: constantly metaphorozing, endlessly creative, and wound intimately around the human subjects that shape and depend on it. Aina (meaning “land” or “earth” in Hawaiian) documents the environment as an imaginal field of forces, in both literal and figurative transformation.
