the moving clouds

The Moving Clouds is an ongoing art project addressing global issues. The installation is sometimes brought to life by my ritual performances. Each performance portrays various actions in repetition—walking, marching and jumping—to express the feelings I encounter in response to global warming and the migration crisis. The reflective material visually connects nature, land and the physicality of the human body, while re-creating the sounds of the ocean.
