'Soil, sand, salt' videos are an exploration of my solitary relationship with the land. I aimed to convey the nexus of a place and the feelings it evokes through a visual autobiography. As a product of diaspora, my pilgrimage back to these ancient and barren landscapes allows for a deep focus on this connection.
I see this project as again exploring the connection between the body and the land, perhaps in terms of reclamation. I, reclaiming my land and my connection to it, while the land itself reclaims it all, swallowing my act once it is over. The overarching feeling is that of impermanence and transition. The shifts and changes in the land is contrasted by its durability and dominance over time.
