In Awaiting Weightlessness (Abu Dhabi, 2021) she examines these issues through the phenomenon of waiting. Three video essays running at three different temporalities create an effect of resonance and dissonance which highlights the body’s experience of space and time. Placed in a state of waiting, the viewer’s linear sense of past, present and future unravels and becomes circular. As time becomes plastic and poetic, space expands and becomes elastic. Gradually, we are made aware of the invisible structures mediating the seemingly intimate relation between figure and ground. Ultimately, we become conscious of how our bodies occupy space through time and how time animates space through our bodies.
