Synopsis

Bottleneck (2014) is an experimental video which is, in part, a reflection on borders. Using a jar of sprouting Mung beans as a metaphor it takes into consideration contemporary manifestations of national borders as they relate to regional and international growth and movement. This video emerges from questions such as: Who gains access? How does water transform a space and its borders? Who can move freely and access resources? What moves in and out of a given space and the boundaries that attempt to demarcate and contain it?
