part of a series of three environment based films, with accompanying silent books (mutus liber). The works loosely explore the idea of viewpoints and a sense of balance in the alchemical energy contained within opposite forces in nature.
Above / Below shows two alternate viewpoints of the same piece of water and explores the ambiguity of the two points of view. The aerial and underwater perspectives provide an authoritative surveillance viewpoint that initially empowers the viewer. At first it is clear which is which and that the height and depth relate to each other, over time this becomes disorientating and unclear.
