Search Though We Might, We May Never See What Lies Beyond the Horizons of Our Imagination

Immersive film installation on the exterior wall of the ODD Gallery at 2nd & Princess Street

Search Though We Might, We May Never See What Lies Beyond the Horizons of Our Imagination is a series of interconnected short films reflecting our psychological and phenomenological interrelationships with the environment, and non-human beings. The starting point of these films is part of an ongoing exploration of the existential limits of human consciousness, vis-a-vis language, both visual and verbal, to encapsulate and express the intimacies and paradoxes of our lived experiences of the lands, flora and fauna we dwell amongst.
