4.5 minutes | 2019 I 16mm

An experimental, feminist meditation on river naiads and backyard deities; nothing noticed is lonely. From inspiration to expiration, breathing is the only work to be enacted now. Respiration is a 16mm collage of ephemeral film imagery (medical education and home movies) optically reprinted frame-by-frame, and original 16mm footage shot on

a wind-up Bolex of domestic and natural worlds.
