Yearning for Hypersea


Yearning for Hypersea is a narrative instrument that uses light as a protagonist to explore themes of immateriality, longing, motherhood and queer ecology. 

“I want to be a refraction of light. A gust of wind. A shadow cast across staggered surface. I want to be the conversation that takes place between them. I want to be weightless, unbounded, shapeshifting. I want to be an interface.”

“Entropy please tear me apart, coming and becoming, coming and becoming. Fold me through the planetary archive of the hypersea where I will swim with ancestral ghosts.”

The script riffs off Astrida Neimanis Hydrofeminism; Or, On Becoming a Body of Water. 

More coming soon.
