Florida, 2021, found-footage, 3D animation. 6’00”.

"A sequence of found and animated footage recorded in a 3D game engine plays out in the everglades of Florida, depicting moments of eco-sensuality and longing from the eye of an amphibious protagonist."

Exhibited at Egret Egress, Toronto, Canada, March 2021.

“You live near a swamp, in the everglades. In the middle of the night, a voice reaches your ears on the wind. It’s faint at first, what does it say? You fire up your airboat, and head into the dark.

You stay out all night. It begins to rain. The voice is growing louder, yet also faint. You wonder, maybe the voice is coming from me? But how could it, without my knowing? Underwater. There’s something there…

You dive down, and just swim and swim. Holding your breath is no issue, for some reason, you just don’t need to take another breath, this one’s lasting forever.”
