As the Yukon and Klondike rivers begin to freeze in winter everything in Dawson seems to come to a standstill. As night becomes indistinguishable from day, stillness becomes indistinguishable from movement and time shifts becoming erratic and muddled.

Shot in winter 2005 during a KIAC Artists residency and edited for Navigator exhibition in a disused shop in Bishop Auckland, November 2006. Musician Dave Barrett produced the music as a response to video material and sound bites I collected when in Dawson. The final clip shows Cave Man Bill talking about the movement of the river as it freezes.
