A long distance relationship (one) is a part video and part performance work that examines the physical and emotional distance between one home and another and what this affect may have. For this work I have chosen to film the body of water that separates Australia and New Zealand - The Tasman Sea.
I stood on the rocks at Clovelley Beach and angled myself facing East which is the direction Australia faces New Zealand. I tried for as long as I could to capture the moving ocean before my hands were frozen and began to ache. It was 12 degrees and I was wearing only a jacket and a thin, short dress.
My long distance relationship lasted only 2 minutes and 6 seconds before I gave into the warmth that I knew was waiting for me in the confines of the car.
