Dawn to Dust
Video – Mixed Media (video/ hand drawn animation/ poem / found footage)
single channel | 2016
Dawn to Dust examines the position of man in relation to their environment and contemplates relaional impact this plundering may have on the personal as well as the collective.
Set in an ethos of geo-political displacement, mass exodus, chronic invasions and lost resistance, this piece is intended as an elegy to the present. Dawn to Dust calls upon the viewer into a moment of collective lament over engagement with the piece.
Dawn to Dust is a mixed media video work that combines motion footage, found material and hand drawn images to weave a narrative.
