Morel’s Yellow Pages (2012),  focuses on fugitive conditions and destructive actions of image making production. The title references The Invention of Morel (1940), Adolfo Bioy Casares’s science fiction novel which informs the work. The artist brings together her research into the use of Baltra Island as an air base for the US army during the Second World War and aerial surveillance photographs of the islands with film footage, documents and factual information collected during her trip to the Galapagos Archipelago to interweave fact and fiction, covert and imagined activities. An extract from the novel accompanies the film and is available to take away.
