video installation, DVD 1:47 2004
This work, made in collaboration with Rainer Jansis an experimental musician, is really a short music video with me as the vocalist with him providing the music. Everything being filmed through the medium of water, it is actually based on a nightmare I have had and I think has a number of levels on which it can be read. It expresses those frustrated physical restrictions often experienced in dreams (the inability to run fast etc) and clearly represents the struggle to communicate. It is somehow a desperate, though enigmatic warning. Perhaps it also expresses the fear of getting old or becoming handicapped and less capable physicaly while still needing to express oneself.
