Across the face of the moon (2019)

"Te marama looms over Hollis’s writing and the resulting video work. Or rather, te marama appears to be the thread that weaves through Hollis’s thinking and making; the moon follows a car through the night; considers the Earth from a distance, and sends out a karanga to someone observing from below. Across the Face of the Moon knits together huge arcs of time—time measured in incomprehensible mind-bending things like moons and galaxies and eons and the distance between stars—with observances on a smaller scale: a couple contemplating their journey as parents to their young son."
