The Weather. Single-Channel. HD. 8:00 Minutes. Color. Sound. 2016.
The Weather tracks the shifting mood of a group of nine people as they are pushed, pulled or stuck between two positions. They rush back and forth from side to side in a blank white space, following in the direction of or against a laterally tracking camera. A rubber plant occupies one side of the space, serving as a gathering or resting place, obstruction or refuge. The pace slows, as the group seems afflicted by a malaise. A reckoning follows as they brace for what comes next.
