Towards the end of 2019 i had made a twelve sided Vessel with the intention of creating a film work to reference a period of time. Nothing really stuck, so it remained on the studio wall. Just as the London lockdown was announced i had the opportunity to grab a few bits from the studio, this Vessel being one of them.
The event seemed an apt moment to create something.
The Passing was filmed and made during the first two weeks of the London lockdown. The silent looping film documents sunlight reflections over the lake i would pass on daily walks through the park.
The bursting light reflections shine bright, dance across the water’s surface, flicker and dissipate like souls leaving our world.
If there is one thing that this virus has given the world, it is time to pause, reflect and meditate.
