every body is heavy
every body is heavy brings to digital life two distinct ambiguous entities. Targeted by an anti-virus scan within a drone surveillance system overlooking the cliffs of Calais and Dover, the entities converse about the power dynamics of bodies and environments across intimate and global scales. They consider the personal and political experiences of spectatorship, implicating the viewer in hierarchies of visual and other consumptions, alongside explorations of sentience and gravity - or, more fittingly, weight.
The filming and production of ‘every body is heavy’ were made possible with the support of EJ O’Reilly (production assistance), Gabriella Davies (music arrangement), Mike Wyeld (sound mixing), Roddy Cañas (sound suite) and Gill Dibben (special effects assistance).
