The stand of the tide., 2015/16
Video and Sound Floor
13:13 loop


The stand of the tide: Before any turn of the tide, there is a brief period where there is no current, the water is completely unstressed. The water level is almost stationary and the tidal currents fall away to zero velocity, before reversing.

Light breaks, then fades; tides rise before they can fall. These are places we visit over and over in our lives – the sites of recurring stasis, the feeling of home. Singular moments unfold across minutes, meditatively stretched across time and yet detached from reality. The washing of hands, a single blink of an eye – their elegant suspension giving way to uncertainty over time. Movement through light distorts and disorients, reveals and conceals.

At the stand of the tide, here I am suspended, waiting for it to fall, fracture, and start again.
