4.5 minutes | 2019 I 16mm

From inspiration to expiration, breathing is the only work to be enacted now.  A feminist, visual scrapbook-like meditation on river naiads and backyard deities – because nothing noticed is lonely. Respiration is a 16mm collage of ephemeral film imagery (pulmonary 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.
