Experiencing Interruptions?

Treading the Boards

"Treading the Boards" by Kim Matovina and Scott F. Hall, 1 August 2021, video with stereo sound, 2 minutes 56 seconds duration.

The 2 minute 56 second stop-motion video with stereo sound, “Treading the Boards”, by Kim Matovina and Scott F. Hall portrays harmony between humanity and Nature while encouraging concern for the latter. As the dancer works deftly and happily through the living rainforest, it becomes ironically apparent that her pathway has been manufactured from planks, the bones of felled trees.
