2010, single-screen video, 1080x1920, 10 minutes, no sound.

Shot on the West Coast of Tasmania with a cinematic lens and at a high frame rate of motion capture, this process-led work is based on the operations of an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler used to measure 'environmental flow'. The fixed-camera is situated at water level, rotated 90 degrees to extend the view vertically above and below. The undulating water appears as a 'wipe' editing technique using both top and bottom edges of the frame, the image flipped vertically with the rising and falling movement of the water, maintaining its momentum, alternately revealed as upright and inverted.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
