The Buoy Archives

Created over several years as an experimental personal essay, The Buoy Archives is a series of short films, fragments and visual poems assembled from an ongoing archive of super8, DV and 16mm photography. Part elegy for lost ideas, thoughts and emotions, these short works haunt the borders between real and fiction, dream and document.
