THE SEPARATION is a reflection on light, duration and visual transformation, filmed in one continuous take at a constant aperture. Moonlight on the sea surface in intermittently revealed and obscured by clouds presenting the possibility for a reflexive and phenomenological viewing experience. The title refers metaphorically to Genesis and the video could also be comprehend as a visual analogue to the cinematic apparatus with consideration of the ways in which light separation occurs within both the perceptual and physical processes of representation. This video is silent.
