English summary
"Arrábida" is a 16mm film centred on the production of landscape and concrete in the Arrábida Natural Park. It merges footage from the park with 3D animation of the topographic landscape as an equal analogue layer.
Arrábida Natural Park is placed south of Lisbon, Portugal. Covering a vast area of coast, caves, mountains and forest, the park is inhabited by a massive factory that branches through the landscape via chutes and shuttle systems over and under ground to transport the porous material from the quarries to the factory, then to the shipping harbour. There is a constant movement of material through the park.
Documenting the various layers of the sourced material, the factory body and the constructed landscape, the film looks at how time is physically embedded in the matter and how the molecular particles act in a circular re-shaping of the whole.
The 3D animation is built from height data of the specific landscape and animated with particle systems (large systems of small units that can simulate ephemeral matters such as explosions, water, fog, dust, etc.). The animated landscape is established from particles into a whole and dissolved from the molar to the molecular respectively. While mapping the earth, the 3D animation acts as a guiding layer of camera paths through the landscape.
