Flight

Shot on a flight to Los Angeles and at LAX airport, Flight is an experimental digital video work which explores, celebrates and questions our relationship with flying through a series of oneiric images, sounds and text. Psychological notions of denial, escape, levity, abandonment, fear and evasion are also touched on. Flight exists in that twilight zone between speed and stillness, safety and danger. Structured around an imaginary plane journey Flight highlights the processes of realisation, observation and memory: a cinema of gestures, suspension and transience.
