The Sea House
7 min looping animation with sound
A collaged animation of historic interiors and live footage of the sea. Made in black and white, the elements have been put together roughly to make their construction and the clash of imagery obvious. The images fit, but not quite.
The black screen with a moving slit, reveals small areas of the interior making the viewer focus on details that might otherwise be overlooked. The interiors are seen as fragments, but heard in their entirety, both excluding us from the space and making it more alluring. The slit is like the beam of a lighthouse moving at the same speed.
Each room has its own sea, with its own sound and atmosphere.
