fire and water

A video installation about the friction between culture and nature. This piece is constituted of two separate video projections which include found footage of a drop of water in slow motion and a hand with matches. A voice-over reads dreams interpretations of natural elements from The Victorian Book of Dreams by Marion Jordan such as:

'Fire - To dream of this subtle element denotes health and happiness to the lover, marriage with the object of your affections, and many children ... To dream you see burning lights descending as it were from heaven is a very bad sign indeed. It portends some dreadful accident to the dreamer.' © 2006.
