An Equilibrium Not of This World takes its title from Chinese Geographer Yi-Fu Tuan who writes about human beings’ search for the ideal environment and a connection with the world around us. The film uses running, and hillrunning specifically, as a conduit for the exploration of this symbiotic relationship between the body and landscape, the balance between nature and machine, and the intersection between internal and external experience.

NVA and Edinburgh Art Festival jointly commissioned this work as part of NVA’s Speed of Light project. Speed of Light was a highlight of Edinburgh International Festival and part of London 2012 Festival.

Please note: This film contains a wide range of subtle audio, for the optimum experience please use headphones or connect external speakers to your computer.
