She will be showing CircumSolar, Migration 1, a new video art installation. The work is a 30-minute, single-channel video projection onto a 25-feet diameter screen, raised above the sand on a circular truss. The content of the film focuses on migration and is based on the arctic tern, a very small sea bird that has the longest migration of all living beings on earth, flying from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back again each year.
