Growing out of a series of works that explored life’s thresholds, transitions, and passages, this work continues the idea of integrating the viewer within the video image, conjuring up the experience of immersion in the natural world. Viewers pass through layered screens alive with softly descending images that invoke the tranquility and fragility of the element of water. A range of metaphorical associations are awakened in a subtle way through faintly seen text, drawings and paintings, incorporated throughout the ongoing image of falling water and light. Evocative sound suggests human voices expressing emotional longing and spiritual promise.
