Across the Water (2021) A visual poem / video poetry

A short film on being torn between family and opportunity. Perpetually on the wrong side of the water. The footage is of my mother, filmed at the beach across the water from the airport in Copenhagen, where I have both left and met her many times now.

My home is always across the  water

the water is a sea, sometimes  a screen

regardless its always blue and endless

what I reach for is blurred by pixels or wet fog


for many years I only say my mom through a screen

behind different blue icons

my own reflection has also become blurred

its sharpest in the borderless land between takeoff and landing 

my home is always across the water
