I created this short film to help me solidify ideas for HOMEBIRTH, performed during September 2013 at the Point Center of Contemporary Art in Nicosia, Cyprus as part of the Performance and Live Art Platform curated by Yiota Demetriou. The ocean is evoked though it is not seen. The landscape of the ocean is archived in the body.
While developing the piece in Cyprus, I was fascinated by the landscape and it’s subsequent effect on the work. A tension began to emerge between the heated and oceanic Cypriot landscape and the industrial ambiance of the initial piece produced in London. As a result, I came into a deeper understanding as to how a landscape reflects my inner geography.
