This is an excerpt from a longer piece that I created in collaboration with the musicians Laetitia Stott and Chris Bartholomew.
This film is concerned with the idea of location and material. Buddhist prayer flags are hung along mountaintops and paths all over the Himalayas. It is believed that as the wind moves through them, the prayers on the flags are carried away into the surrounding world. In the moment of this encounter between prayer-fabric-wind, there is a conjunction of the sacred/ordinary, the ephemeral/material and the tactile/visual. This film uses the camera to reveal and make manifest this moment that the eye can sense but not see.
