Heavier Than Air
16 minutes 35 seconds, single channel HD telecine video with stereo sound
A response to India’s Northwestern desert state, Rajasthan. It was shot on 8mm film and draws inspiration from a culture heavily steeped in spirituality and ritual. The title is a reference to all the kites that dot the skies in the cities and towns throughout the state. Kites are heavier than air objects that gain lift from aerodynamic forces - which in turn acted as a visual metaphor for transcendence through faith. Modern distractions aside, the kids were still out flying kites.
