Swan

The latent power of the beast is juxtaposed with equally powerful cavernous spaces created by the swans feathers, drawing you in, as they inexorably open. The images are further abstracted threw re - filming the bulb of the projector creating yet another surface tension. The delineation of recognisable forms almost dissolves into a pulsating swirl of darkness and light. The Swan becomes a foil in portraying our own libidinal drives and myths.
