Secrets of the open sea

Butcher, Rosemary (2015) Secrets of the open sea. [Performance]


Secrets of the Open Sea is a pivotal film installation from archive series Language as Source. This three-screen video installation creates a sculptural and immersive experience around the concept ‘desolation of things past and decayed’. References to and from the past remain integral to the work which functions as an active ‘searching’ for ‘lost legacies’ that the spectator engages in. The archive installation integrates recordings of creative processes and in particular deals with development of language used in now-archived work.
