“O my soul” is a solo dance film about a woman and her relationship to the passage of time. Time is seen through the speed and stillness of the natural and hyper-digitized dancing female body, and its contrast to the outdoor landscapes of labor found in the metal structures, steep hills, and gravel roads. With undercurrents of wind rippling through hair and clothing, this work meaningfully reveals experiences of time with textures and sensations of nature, body, and location.
This work was created as part of the IN 7 – Experimental Video Art Residency at Gardenship in Kearny Point, NJ curated by Kasia Skorynkiewicz, June 2022.
