Wolves from Above (2018)

Demelza Kooij’s film installation Wolves from Above captures the quiet interactions of a wolf pack, filmed through a single drone shot. These elusive animals inhabit a tranquil wilderness where the sounds of growling, sniffing and licking feel oddly nearby, heightening the intimacies of communication through human-to-wolf spectatorship.

Though they are being filmed, the wolves continue their almost silent communication, but their occasional glances to the sky illustrate an awareness of the drone humming above them, indicating how our use of technologies to observe and document animals - however gentle - still have an effect on animal behaviour.
