There is an island called Dome, which I can see out the front window of my cottage. It's probably the thing I've filmed the most over the years. It changes with the seasons, with the sky, with the waters and ice that form around it. The rise of land sometimes impacts the shapes of the clouds above it.  I've noticed the uprooted and broken trees, and the gaps in the forest caused by lightning strikes. I've watched eagles perch on it, and wolves cross the ice after visiting it. I've filmed it from all sides, but that isn't so important, as the island changes regardless of the stability of my perspective. I watch it in the hopes it will share with me some secrets of the past, the present, the future. The series title is ironic in the sense that there is no decisive moment when it comes to Dome Island, because so many moments reveal something special about the island.
