dust (21o4) is part seven of the lion series
Referencing Yayoi Kusama’s concept of self-obliteration, Dust is a memory document, a self-portrait in a moment one prefers to forget. Using techniques to erase portions of the image, the film is a mutating, disintegrating echo of the bibilical references in The Weight of Snow. Dust references genesis; we are dust, and to dust we return.
Dust is part seven of seven in the Lion series. Composed of seven works, Lion is a series of films creted on 16mm and hand processed with darkroom techniques that mimic the effects of radiation on film. Researched in Chernobyl, the series is a product of memories, history, pop culture and technical experiments to create visual representations of invisible forces. Lion consists of five collage diary works with two technical study films.
