Company Stream (excerpt)


Company Stream is loosely based on To the Observatory, an extraordinary paean to the sensual and orientational capacities of eels written in ecstatic streaming prose by Julio Cortazar. Shot entirely underwater the artist follows the movements of an eel in disorientating close up.

Commissioned by CIRCUIT and curated by Mercedes Vicente as part of Thick Cinema (2017), a series of artist cinema commissions exploring the role of the body and sensorial experience in cinematic intelligibility and meaning.

This work is discussed by the artist on CIRCUIT Cast 51. 

This work is discussed in an essay by Tim Corballis, 2019.
