HD video, sound composition with humpback whale songs, 2016 / 2019, 04:32
Two figures (foreground female body, distant ghostlike body) standing far apart on desert hills mirror each other’s movements across a great expanse to a sound composition with humpback whales calling to each other in the ocean. A reflection on relationships with other creatures, landscape, time, and borders (when the desert was the ocean floor).
Filmed at the Mexican/U.S. border in Big Bend Ranch State Park, Texas. Distant figure: Ryan Henel.
