Absorbing red photons (working title) is currently a work-in-progress video installation. It continues a trajectory in my work that uses cultural phenomenon, often types of transportation, as a starting point to discuss current structures, systems and indeterminate preoccupations. The artwork takes as its starting point a tourist trip in a submersible that travels to a depth of 2,000ft below sea level of the coast of Roatan, Honduras.

The aim of the artwork is to explore what might be revealed through this brief act of submersion in a place of perpetual darkness.
