Unexpected Undertaking (2018) is a two minute and fourteen second video work that creates a snippet of an alternate world. The above perspective mechanically shifts and searches through the dense forest environment where we catch glimpses of civilisation and the coming alive of the forest, which gradually builds a narrative. The footage has been digitally manipulated with effects to create a sense of another world that is familiar yet distant, sounds has also been added to enhance the immersive experience. The effects, visuals and sound paired together evoke a tension surrounding wonder and terror towards the familiar yet unfamiliar environment, which is reminiscent of the Sublime.
