Dance of the Skyscraper Islands

In this video loop, folded paper sculptures create a motif of skyscrapers repeated and animated against an expanse of ocean. The skyscrapers are like islands -- half emerge from the water while the other half sink, again and again, perpetually. They are caught in this rhythmic dance cycle forever.

This work began in residency at Hangar CIA in Lisbon, Portugal, during the summer of 2016. The editing was completed in 2017.
