An elegant combination of rich, provocative imagery and economical design. Just as the movement in the film evokes ideas of things un-forming as you reach out to grasp them so the concept of the work remains mobile, moving and elusive. The work draws us into the relationship between the surfaces of the site and the skin of the dancer through its close photography and intense use of diegetic sound. The dancer moves in restless circles always at the point of becoming submerged until the final image, which offers us a shift, an exit and a potential point of emergence.
