Immerse: A large-scale moving image/sound installation exploring the world of female sea swimming. Drawing upon associations of waterscape as inner landscape, the work converges with projection as a photographic medium and psychoanalytic approach. Immerse employs moving image, embodying the paradoxical qualities of photography; distilling time yet equally adept at creating the illusion of a liquidity of time. Shot in the sea using natural light, the camera movement and underwater sound create a mysterious dreamlike environment playing with notions of surface and depth, isolation and communication, reflection and inversion. Installed in dark space, the images pour through three vertical fabric screens, encouraging the discovery of multiple viewpoints and inviting audience immersion into a light and shadow subaquatic world.
