The air is heavier than horse

Mexico /2016 Video-installation / loop

The Air is heavier than a horse reflects on how flight (migration) “returns”, like a boomerang, as the birds migrating north to south. Using the cut out images of wings from 25 different bird species, a new bird is constructed, that through its multiplicity of parts becomes not one bird but many. The flight, as migration, “returns” like a boomerang. There is an eternal return, through a recurrence that is progressive and not just cyclical.
