Her Mind Moves Upon Silences

Fiber Boat, Video

A person moves through and around a nursing home riding in a wheelchair, periodically putting her hand over the lens of the camera anchored on this wheelchair, as if to put her hands over her eyes — metaphorically blocking her view of the reality she inhabited.

The boat is created using kite fabric as kites move with and respond to the powerful currents of wind.
