Solastalgia: Permanent Landscape (2014, 11 mins) by Carolyn Lambert is an experimental, fragmented nature video, motivated by a desire to compose an alternative to popular narratives around the specter of climate change. Deferring a singular narrative, a collaged voice-over navigates desire, anxiety, concepts of nature, and attempts to imagine a future society over a montage of insects, bodies, real and simulated landscapes.
