Being on an expedition aboard a ship in the high arctic, I got transported to different fjords throughout the journey. Facing the vast, deserted landscape, I felt extremely tiny. I basically lost my orientation, not able to locate myself, at all. So, with a sturdy video tripod and a camera, all I did during each landing was to conduct 180° pan shots, repeatedly, as steady and slowly as possible. As if, I was rehearsing for a dance performance with my tripod every time during shooting, while the camera documented the way we practice all along.
