West Coast Premiere
Departing from Virginia Woolf's experimental novel THE WAVES, the video imagines how consciousness forms in relation to society and its technologies, but also in relation to the expressions of geological, hydrological, and meteorological processes. Filmed at the threshold between land and sea, a conversation on limits and language forms between disparate hydro-relations, like the structure of Woolf's prose, Courbet's paintings of the sea, Google's data centers cooled by the Baltic Sea, invisible jellyfish, and transoceanic cables.
