Elemental Gestures

Two short clips from the yet to be premiered
(total running time 16 minutes)

This is a piece that developed out of an action at Halan’s Point (Toronto, ON) in the summer of 2009. The movement and interactions along with the digital static that make up this work subvert the tropes that perpetuate the heroicized “Man-in-nature” construct. The natural environment interacts as a “body” and not a passive participant, prop or backdrop; nor is it venerated and fixed in the realm of the sublime. This new video is both visceral and poetic, encompassing a range of emotions from alienation to respect and romanticized idealization.

Ideally, this video would be viewed as large screen projection, however, it could also be screen as a single channel piece with a title in the beginning and credits at the end.
