TOTAL FIELD

Alana Bartol - 2017 Canada - 10:03

A dowser visits abandoned oil wells in rural Alberta. The dowsing rod takes flight, demonstrating its powers of divination, warding off dangerous forces and creatures that lurk at these sites.

TOTAL FIELD is one in a series of works that asks how dowsing might shift our relationships to natural resources, technology, and place, while examining remediation, care, and the reliability of information.

TOTAL FIELD was made possible by a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
