A body of work aimed at capturing the pulsation of prana; life force within each of the elements of earth, air, fire and water. Video stills sequencing the movement of the ind, the moon on the water reveal all that is transforming within 30 frames or a second in time; a blink of an eye. The ever expanding and contracting force of life and of the elements is captured quite literally frame by frame in its vitalness and resounding pulsations.

PRANA | VAYU AND PALM LEAVES
I would like to show this in diptych with the regular Palm Leaves video - creating a pattern with the motion of the Vayu (wind) in the palm. I think about projecting this video and the un-effected version also with a wall of mirror reflecting the projection and making another copy within space.
A four minute pulsation of water and flicker of light in a cenote with the sounds at dawn in the jungle. Perhaps broken into 4 one minute loops and projected on 4 walls would be an ideal installation.
Taking the basic cenote and adding a reflection to it - adding a distortion to the sound seems to emphasize the pulsation of the sound and the image. Working in the direction of the dawning, primordial quality.
PRANA | cenote 18
In 18 frames or 1.6 seconds - the magical light and rippling waters flicker and change emanting the life force of the water.
PRANA | MARBLE WATER 21 FRAMES
PRANA | SUNSET WATER 108
Here you see 30 frames of 108 frames of the water and the pink dusk reflected in just one second of time...the 108 frames are printed on 4 sheets and represent 3.6 seconds in time. Capturing the stills of prana and its dance within the the element of water contained within 108 - a sacred Budhist/Hindu number.

PRANA SEQUENCES | VIDEO + VIDEO STILLS
VIDEO STILLS captured in sequences relay the exact passage of time in frames per second as the elements imbue the frames with their action. One second sequences are 30 frames. 108 frames represent 3.6 seconds. Images available as limited edition prints
