Meaning, "Howl of the Wind"
(6:53, USA/Netherlands, 2019)
A voice labors to pronounce words we no longer know. These are words which hold meaning only when we can experience the ecology surrounding us, only when we can recall certain 'natural' phenomena, only when we can take the time to notice -- And then there is a new word, a word that has been created out of necessity to describe these pangs, these longings, these ongoing losses. Using re-worked archival footage from the Enthusiasts Archive (via Marysia Lewandowska and Neil Cummings), the artist explores words that have been lost from daily use.
