  • Intertwining fiction with documentary, Emilija Škarnulyt?’s videos and multimedia installations explore the psychological power that our environment holds over us, taking an anthropocentric view through the lens of her camera. Focusing on the invisible relations between the physical world and our social imaginary, her films have looked into geological ungrounding processes, for example the concept of geologic time and its influence on our relation with history; invisible architectures, such as the way violent conflicts inscribe themselves in the earth’s structure and vice versa, as well as larger systems of power. She is currently conducting research on a former military submarine site in Norway; built during the Cold War, now privatized, it is a strategic point in the oil industry.
