stood in tears amid the alien corn
2020 Lockdown video with an overarching tone of strangeness and displacement within the ordinary. The world is interpreted in a way that is honest and fragile rather than glorifying or commodifying. In reference to ‘Ode to a Nightingale’ by Keats, the title recalls the idea of negative capability, and the pursuit of meaning that leads to confusion and uncertainty.
Video accompanied by a small publication in the form of a paper slip with the narration of the video folded inside.
Video duration: 9m
