eels (video, running time 7:07, 2010)

eels was captured and recorded late at night from the live video feed of Surface (2010-2013).
"The sudden presence on the live video feed of these bottom dweller fish in False Creek*, (a waterway known for its toxic silt)
was a surprise to me, especially as it was late in the evening, I was drowsy, and they suddenly wriggled across the screen in my
studio, jolting me. Once I got over the shock, I quickly pressed record and was struck their fluidity of movement, sometimes moving
in relation to each other: reminiscent of synchronized swimmers.
eels was installed at the Charles H. Scott Gallery in Vancouver as part of the series entitled
The Voyage, or Three Years at Sea Part III, curated by Cate Rimmer
