Migrations of the Arthropods, 2012, compilation of 4 video loops, 5 min. 22 sec.

Videos as part of a 5 months artist in residence program with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council on Governors Island, New York city. I have developed a scenario going from my daily surrounding, starting with my bedroom, living room, moving to my studio and the Fort's magazine on the Island, to an escape to the water to test the float ability of my dress.

In the studio I have built wearable structures from recycled plastic containers : they extend the body at the same time as they isolate it, enacting a changing environment. I am experimenting with a dress which allows me to float upright and be ever ready to enter the water. This will be particularly useful when its level rises. Insects are predicted as the species that will thrive with climate change and I am practicing to adapt and become one.
