Viewpoints examines the roll media plays in shaping our understanding of the world. Each video captures a shortwave radio in picturesque landscapes of central Newfoundland. The radio’s staging within the picture plane disconnects it from the landscape while the sound of the natural environment contrast with the broadcasted audio. Varying signal propagation conditions combined with the radio’s unique construction allow for several stations to play simultaneously, re-narrating the constructed world views of the state, religious and commercial broadcasters. In this remote landscape, we are surrounded by global messages that shape our view of the world and dominate our senses. The media is both literally and figuratively in the foreground while the physical reality around us plays only a minor role in our ‘view’ of the world.
