To meet the sea
To meet the sea explores the idea of becoming older as time travel - the idea that we are all everyone we have ever been. Time loses its linear, teleological trajectory and becomes layered, parallel or cyclical. This is an ongoing project taking many forms: sound and voice, still and moving image, text and participation. If you would like to be involved please get in touch.
To meet the sea 2018 Stereo audio recording 5’58 with annotated digital photographic prints.
To meet the sea uses fragments of seven women’s discourse with a percussive accompaniment to explore time as cyclical and layered. It challenges teleological and linear conceptions of time through the idea of becoming older as time travel. With thanks to Anne O’Driscoll, Kathryn Hardy, Paulette Storey, Kate Wooff, Mary Moss, Sally Hobbs and Anne Tucker for their words and voices and to Eddie Sherwood for percussion.
