Kenai is a video artwork about Alaska, the murkiness of childhood memories, and a dead humpback whale. The work centers on a family story from decades ago from the Kenai Peninusla. Archival footage, HD video, and family home movies eventually dissolve into new footage shot far away from the Kenai, above the Arctic Circle. By placing an old story within a new landscape, the artist navigates loss and the past. The landscape of memory is at once familiar and foreign. Love is a constant all the same.
