When We Didn’t Touch the Ground: Video
5:01 min., HD video
When We Didn’t Touch the Ground is a single-channel video, a site-specific video installation and a series of photographs.
This work is an homage to the environments the artists created as children, reinterpreting the sites of their early imaginative lives to explore what it means to combine creative worlds. In the video, a man climbs down a mountain range of stacked furniture, carrying sandbags, and walks through a mylar creek bed to put the sandbags on a dam. Meanwhile, a cube with a woman in a hammock rises from behind the mountain range and lifts her through the space until she descends on a rope of bedsheets to join a real-life dinner party in progress.
