Six videos against a shared sonic backdrop, these works employ elements of traditional and neo-shamanic practices. In the style of shamanic 'journeying', the work depicts a surreal 'otherworld' that is different from our own; perhaps the home of spirits or gods.
The work meditates on commonalities between humans and birds, using our shared relationship with the sun to explore the cyclical nature of light and life.
The figure on-screen wanders in and out of frame, seeming to move freely between monitors (or worlds). The installation culminates with a trance-like transformation sequence wherein the line between human and bird becomes porous.
