Fireworks look better from a distance (trailer)

Full duration: 00:03:24:21
Completion Date: 2022

The work navigates experiences of witnesses of fireworks and missiles using amateur video clips, audio and storytelling highlighting the blurry lines between excitement and horror. By juxtaposing the experience of war and celebration together with the personal stories related to the occasions the work questions the notion of spectatorship and war in the 21st century in light of rising conflicts in particular the war in Ukraine.

Exibited as a part of the group exibition “Any Thing Going Away, Where Ever Remains” at Canton-Sardine, Vancouver, BC (2022)
