WHITE SHADOWS, 2015

This video serves as a 4 minute visual response to Canadian composer Lydia Ainsworth's orchestral piece 'White Shadows'. Rather than work with narrative, the focus was to create an interplay with the song – something akin to the invisible dance that takes place within the subconscious mind as an underlying energy takes shape and begins to grow. A dance because the evolution of an idea (a shadow) is often non-linear, traveling miles intuitively up from the depths in trust before suddenly arriving into light.

Mixed media: graphite, pencil crayon, acrylic, gouache on paper
