2:44 minutes of 9:05 minutes

The Ijen Mining Project focuses on sulfur miners working in the Ijen volcano of East Java. The Ijen miners endure unbelievable hardships, both physical and psychological, in a location that is otherworldly in its beauty.

Taking the form of a video installation, single channel video, and photographs, the Ijen Mining Project presents an individual who has put everything on the line in a struggle to define and defend identity in one of the most extreme environments imaginable. He willingly accepts the risk of free fall in the search for transcendence.
