All Kinds of Disintegration

All Kinds of Disintegration (2020)

All Kinds of Disintegration explores the shared aesthetics of the interruption of the glitch with the maternal.

Shot in the summer of 2020 using a smartphone as a needs-must means of production, All Kinds of Disintegration presents a layered collection of short vignettes captured during the first period of COVID-19 lockdown. The maternal is re-imagined in unfamiliar ways though a co-created transformative landscape using performed actions, moving image and sound.
