Manifesting the Hidden


Single Channel Video. 6:36 minutes. 2022.

Where the ocean meets the sand, the encounter between two dancers echoes the endless rhythm of waves across the tidepools. Reminding us that all life is a circle, that when your smiling eyes meet the eyes of another they will smile back, and that is the center point.
