A multimedia documentary project that aims to describe the experience of the perilous twenty-one-mile journey across the English Channel, made by those desperately seeking safety and asylum.
The video uses a single photograph taken in the middle of the English Channel and combines it with over 400 smart phone audio recordings taken from actual Chanel crossings, and the artists own recordings while out on location. In addition, the photographs in this work share a similar aim of describing this experience. The images of the sea and sky are taken over the English Channel on the exact same time and day of actual crossings as they occur and are combined with the physical and emotional signs and traces and traces this difficult journey leaves behind.
The video is best viewed with headphones.
