Metaphoric images are intercut with footage of women whose eyes are closed, saying, as if in a trance, Rushford’s script of original poetic compositions.
Carbon Study II (the water carriers)
2010, video and audio, 3min 8 Sec
Carbon Study II (the water carriers), which was shot in a park in Berlin in July 2010, is a two channel video. On the left, a group of children are being led in a set of movements. Their goal is to each keep a small plate filled with water as they move. On the right, a hand is shown in close-up. The hand is covered in a layer of reflective graphite. On the palm is a live projection made by holding a reflective lens in the fingers. It shows details of trees, sky and parts of the same park where the children are being taught.
