Reclaiming Vision is a film focusing on aquatic life forms that are invisible to the human eye yet that have been affected by human activity. The artists place microorganisms and pollutants from Norwegian fjords under a light microscope in choreographed sequences, blurring the boundary between nature documentary and fiction. By exploring brackish water, its inhabitants, properties, and human traces, the film reflects upon our relationships with the ‘natural’ environment, especially those we cannot see without technology.
