Float, HD Video Projected on Water, 2:28, 2019
Float is inspired by a conversation I had with Luci Cook about the entire process of having multiple heart transplants. After making numerous amounts of work with her about the actual medical procedures, I asked her what portion of her story she thought was missing. She replied that the part of healing from and overcoming the emotional trauma from the transplants was missing. She explained to me how traveling abroad helped her to heal. Float is created from a series of videos she recorded while swimming abroad in Germany that were then edited and re-projected onto water. The weightlessness of the video onto the water reflects on her healing process.
