filmmaker's note
In my artistic practice, I work with the human body to create abstract sculptural forms that evolve over time. I seek to create a mass that transcends the individual. In "Salt Water", the living sculpture responds to a dynamic range of conditions beyond its control, much in the way that weather patterns shift geological formations. We are drawn into the push and pull of a large mass, the swell of an anonymous crowd of interlocked bodies where individual identification is only a momentary glimpse. Beneath the abstract form, intimate human connections reside. For the viewer, this negotiation between a distant abstract surface and a face in close proximity evokes a stroke of empathy; a call from the depths that is once again swept away. The work's central challenge is to expose the humanity and complexity of the individual as she or he exists within the crowd.
