Summer Breeze (2014)

8 min 13 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"Summer Breeze explores the displacement and necessary adaptation required when changes in environment are imposed. As worlds expand and overlap, the boundaries between landscapes become blurred and muddied. The habitation of humanity, in a continuous swelling of development, trespasses on unseen territories. In a gradual metamorphosis, rural becomes urban, changing the terrain. Unexpected encounters require an empathic understanding of this convergence, in order to experience the interconnectedness that exists between all living things."
