EDM House

Kevin Schmidt, EDM House (2013)

Commissioned by Fogo Island Arts (with the support of the Canada Council and the British Columbia Arts Council) EDM House is a 17-minute long video the artist shot in northern British Columbia last winter. The work continues Schmidt’s investigation into notions of the sublime, including the folly of its human approximation when contrasted with nature’s grandeur. A number of screenings of EDM House will be presented at the Fogo Island Cinema in summer 2014.
