“Submerge presents a projected animated pool for reflection and temporal immersion, a portal to dynamic underwater worlds of fluidity and potential. Strange phantasmagorical floating lifeforms emerge out of the depths, twitching with life and floating to the surface, into the photic zone.”
The video was a collaboration with Carolyn Lewens (cyanotype photography) and Asmund Heimark (animation).
I composed a 5.1 surround soundtrack for the video, which was projected onto the floor to simulate a “pond-like” effect.
It was installed at Linden Gallery in St. Kilda as part of the Innovators 1 show from April 8 to May 8, 2011 and at the Queensland Centre for Photography from July 17 to August 14 2011.
