Wave. Whip. Fan. is a film commissioned for the project Dokumentasjon E6 which sought out to document the construction of a new high-way in Gudbrandsdalen, Norway. The film takes as a point of departure a small pond that had to be moved a few hundred meters due to it intersecting with the location of the new highway. The title, Wave. Whip. Fan. refers to three tail movements performed by the male smooth newt, Triturus Vulgaris, during courtship. The smooth newt is one of many species found in the pond. A voiceover ties together fragments from archeological and biological  findings from the specific biotope as well as reflections and experiences around an idea of embodied memory.
