    This chapter examines two video artworks by artist Nelly-Eve Rajotte that present landscapes in northern Quebec using aerial views provided by a drone, thus interrogating an anthropocentric representation of landscapes as a passive frame for human activity. The videos and their dehumanized perspective are a basis to reflect on the idea of nonhuman landscapes, i.e. non or less anthropocentric representations of the natural environment that open the possibilities of showing nonhuman elements as singular points of view. They contribute to deepen our understanding of northern spaces in Canada.
