Departing Shadow

Sini Pelkki

The outlines of oneself merge into a given space. An image of shifting connections, the rhythm and movement of contemplation. A conversation between one or two. Departing Shadow examines the forming of a connection and its failure. The interaction and attempted dialogue between a space, a performer and a camera.
