On a journey through fire, heat and energy – Controlled Burn invites the viewer on a cosmic trip through deep time, soaring through an aerial landscape of imploding fireworks. Shot with a first-person drone, this disorienting voyage takes in open pit coal mines, decommissioned oil rigs, and rusting cooling towers, visually tracing the eras of our energy consumption and resource extraction. Through the reversal of these explosions, Charrière explores our desire to turn back time and to reverse the climatic consequences of this fated and faithful relationship.
