To See Place 

Performance video, 6:21

This dock was constructed to respond to body weight. In engaging with the object, participants are required to negotiate with one another and the object, brought into intimate relationship with one another and their environment.

The dock was created as a prop for the video work To See Place. At the Amistad reservoir, a man-made body of water that spans the US/MX border, performers were filmed from a bird’s-eye view and a first person perspective. The video work questions how our technologies mediate the way we see our surroundings-- asserting the importance of both lenses in negotiating the politics of landscape.
