Brydee Rood A Dance That Lasts Forever, 2019
Assorted rubbish bags and saved single use plastics, survival blankets, bamboo, tape, builders twine. Dimensions variable.
As the work creates a movement with the wind and the site, it reflects the dance of our consumed traces repeating in nature. Echoing the drift of micro-plastics carried in the elements a dance of dire consequence for ocean habitats and marine species. By hoisting large colour sheets to the wind, soft plastic compositions flutter on lines that lean and tilt with a precarity that is true to its context. I am placing the material again in our path, floating visibly in our mind’s eye. A dance that passes through our touch so fleetingly yet a dance that lasts forever.
