Shed a Light

Shed A Light shows us a space where nature is purported to have taken over from humanity. Inspired by global warming, the filmed environment invites us to explore and celebrate ambiguity by being at once intimate and expansive. The video is an ode to diagonal lines, the transcending of limits and the joy of slipping over a fence to discover a wasteland. Or, a now-abandoned but marvelous garden, in which the artist has discovered a forgotten dystopic biological laboratory.
