Water and Air were silent films which we, Anna and Pauline, made as representations of our thoughts about these elements. We did not share our intentions with any of the contributors, so their interpretations are not influenced by our original concept. Discovering how we can accept the interpretations of others is the challenge we face… Drawing Breath referred to Pauline’s last breath, and A Balancing Act referenced the balance of water in her body as she moved towards death. The films have been installed at various sites and have been shared at Roselidden’s The End of the Road Cafe.
