every body is heavy



Over the course of 18 minutes seen through the lens of a surveillance drone, every body is heavy explores a romantic narrative between two ambiguous entities preyed upon by anti-virus software. The entities converse about power and poetics of bodies and environments across intimate and universal scales, musing on spectatorship, sentience, gravity and mass—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), Mike Wyeld (sound mixing), Roddy Cañas (sound suite), Gill Dibben (special effects assistance), and Paul Booth and Tom Railton (woodwork support).
