Rose / Lightwork, 2016
3D & 2D stop-motion animation fused with film.
Mixed media organic and inorganic material
A shamanic light worker ambles the tendrils of a sick celestial woodland beyond the known biosphere, and comes across the cause of its suffering.
A tortoise lay wounded, a thorn pricked deep in her belly. Swallowing her pain, the shaman portals to the interior of the spirit world. Tuning in to cosmic frequencies and primordial sounds that evoke an ethereal trance to the language of light.
Ecology and spirituality orbit Lightwork, echoing messages of sacrifice, healing and the tender intercourse displayed in evolved ecosystems. A mantra in a mirrored space sitting between sickness and health, dark and light, silence and symphony.
