Ideas Come First

"The Hand Moved Along The Wall" is an artwork exploring the transition between life and death.

A person's thoughts drift in a place where life meets death, focusing on their surroundings as they delve deep into their own subconscious. These encounters are illuminated by an ever-present but indefinable light source. It is the light that reveals the objects in my film.

The wind in the soundtrack creates an intense atmosphere, its violence slowly permeating interior spaces. Birdcalls are slowed to create the wailing of chanting voices. The breath is my own.

The title is taken from the poem "I, Daniel" by Canadian poet Phyllis Webb, and evokes the blindness of a journey into the unknown. What is death?

This work was created for display in a private, darkened space.
