Charles Stankievech The Soniferous Æther of The Land Beyond The Land Beyond 2013, Canada, 11 min Founding faculty member of Yukon SOVA in Dawson City, now living in Berlin, Charles was the first civilian to do an artist residency at CFB Alert on Ellesmere Island. The audio-visual installation was shot at the northernmost settlement on earth— ALERT Signals Intelligence Station— as part of a series of fieldworks looking at remote outpost architecture, military infrastructure and the embedded landscape. Shot using a computer controlled time‐lapse tracking camera during the winter months, the military spy outpost radiates within a shroud of continuous darkness under a star-pierced canopy harkening an abandoned space station.
