Water can be intimate or expansive. It can give and destroy life. It is eternal, ephemeral, and in a constant state of change. 'Removed' is an open-ended meditation that asks the viewers to reflect on what it means to be removed. The imagery of a harbor dredging is slowed down and manipulated, effectively removing the original imagery and replacing it with a new experience that is romanticized and brutal.
This version is meant for theatrical screenings. Another version is designed for looping in a gallery setting.
