limbs seeds circle dance is about the desire to connect to the natural world in an increasingly disjointed society. Special effects technology allows contemporary artists to become modern-day wizards. There is a contradiction in how cultural advances can also isolate and distance us.  The central figure casts a spell in a grove of urban trees, making multiple images of himself in his mind’s eye that emerge like tree nymphs, but they are odd, uncoordinated creations which ultimately fade away like a hallucination in the confusing blur and dream of life.

It is part of a series of videos works with a meditative aim, inviting the viewer to slow down and let the imagery wash over them in a manner that is subversive in its intentional serenity.
