'Time and Time Again'.
(Video stills, 2008, work in progress)
Nature never stops, it runs in cycles, always transient, always recurring. Nature, earth and boundaries are central themes in my work, which is often inspired by different natural forms and structures. Time and time again consist of a series of video stills, taking the borders between the sea, the land and human interventions as its starting point. It is a work in progress for an on-going project on Nature/Culture. The sequence of images freezes the never-ceasing movement of the sea, as a photographic memory of the natural cycle of time.
