You can't see the mountain from the peak

Callum Ross – You can't see the mountain from the peak

In the present day, the evolution of the quality of CGI forces us to question our  relationship to digital representations of our world and the impact they have on  us. This project explores the current ambiguity of the digital image through an  interactive short film based around mountain imagery, used for its symbolism  of an everlasting geological phenomenon, but which paradoxically, are some of  the fastest images to generate.  Through the use of a smartphone, we navigate this  variable experience between real and virtual, gradually questioning the reality  of the situation that is shown.
