Continuum is a collaborative video work and part of an ongoing exploration of the elemental nature of water; its rhythms and circulations. The work is a contemplation and honouring of water and a reminder of the fragility of the human condition. Continuum weaves a journey of a river from its source beneath the earth as it flows to the sea and its return, its passage of time reminding us of life death and change.
“We as humans have an innate connection with water, we are cushioned by embryonic fluid and when the waters break we emerge. Water is our life blood, our pulse like the waves, our veins like the tributaries of a stream which run into rivers and on to the sea”.
The film has been shown at Liquidscapes in June 2018, as part of the three day international conference at Dartington Hall, Devon, concerning water and fluid states.
AV Collaborations developed in 2013 by Ann Rapstoff and myself. We share an ongoing connection with the landscape with a specific interest in water. Through walking, performance, video, sound, photography and drawing we are interested in developing a dialogue with the environment. We draw on perception, experimentation and experiential practice discovering another energy to the locations we visit. We have worked in locations around the UK, including The Gower Peninsula in Wales, North Yorkshire and Oxfordshire.
