In Absentia

In Absentia Parts 1 and 2 explore a poignant connection to the experiential landscape, with particular focus on the ephemeral nature of the sea and its ability to evoke autobiographical reflection. Through a childlike fascination with collection, within video and installation, the motif of the glass jar becomes a poetic metaphor of an attempt to preserve time and memory; it secondarily functions to suggest the unexpected sensation of claustrophobia, felt on moving to a landlocked town after 16 years living on the coast.
