maps of emotion 2 / venezia

opera dance film installation | 3 channel video installation HD 16:9 | 13 min loop

Connected hearts, even when apart. The synchronicity of simultaneous events. Urban bodies move to inner landscapes. City as body as city - arteries, neural pathways, fluids... lanes and canals. Water, mirroring reflexions, phantasies. Travel and eroticism stretch time... A topography of senses, a place where eyes and ears open. Venice. Wherever we go, we stay the same. | about the collaboration between Brian Asawa and Lutz Gregor
