Two Skies disallows any and all shift in perspective and shows two horizons of a gas field, filmed from a drilling platform in the Tampen area in the southern part of the Norwegian Sea at two different times of day: dawn and dusk. A surreal landscape that departs from dimension of terrestrial reality extends across the whole width of the space. The muffled monumental sound, the penetrating blue and the flashing white waves transport the viewer to a place that cannot exist in this way. Two ocean surfaces from ground and sky, strictly separated by a dynamic horizon. Perhaps this horizon is an entrance to other surrounding, to landscapes that lead away from this scenario. Lukas Marxt employs the elements of water and wind here as tools in the production of his picture. Wind power moves the deep blue ocean surfaces that seemingly can become a dangerous vortex within a matter of seconds.
