Earth Water Sky residency: work-in-progress talk and exhibition rescheduled for 2021

I recently spoke to curator Ariane Koek about what I’ve been working on so far for my Earth Water Sky residency for a talk as part of the Science Gallery Venice’s online programme. You can hear about how I collaborated with The Ice Memory Project, working with ice core scientists and how this informed the film I am making with three dancers, filmed underwater in the deepest pool in the world.
