Video - Cole Pierce
Audio - Kendrick Shackleford and Cole Pierce
Fishing was created from footage captured with an underwater video camera attached to fishing line and controlled by a fishing pole in the middle of Lake Hayward, WI. Governed by chance, the video drifts back and forth between chaos and order. The murky green monochrome and shifting pattern of bubbles is a sublime landscape that occasionally gets interrupted by the reality of a school of fish swimming by. The soundtrack is equally alienating, which is an ambient glitch filled soundscape of processed guitar, ethereal textures and a flux of structures created by Cole Pierce with help from Kendrick Shackleford and Tyler Carter.
