Filmed in the dark winter months of 2008–9 in South West Finland, Inertial Frame captures the moving sea, sky & islands of the beautiful Finnish Archipelago. Consisting of 5 shots between the Islands Pargas and Nauvo, the film explores our perceptions of time, distance and speed in relation to memory, technology and human scale. Starting in daylight and ending in darkness the real space and cinema space are bought into question, as the light fades the sense of distance flattens, the movement slows to an imperceptible level.
