Phase Change: Act II (2019, installation, 4 channel video run time 15:01)

The second of a three part year long installation. Leaving the wreckage of Act I, we venture back into nature. Act II proposes a full reevaluation; we search for a new life force, floating somewhere in a sea of collapse. In a four channel video opera, three millennials travel and labor to turn water into steam. Enacting a contemporary ritual, they meditate on the phase change and learn from its will. The video is housed in a boat on a sea of brick taken from homes long gone, surrounded by moments, plans, and ideas from the pages of notebooks, diaries, and the ritual’s musical score.
