Stitching Oceans is an audiovisual time based performance, where the performer constantly constructs by stitching the surface where the image is being projected. The image is constructed over a thin piece of wet fabric, soaked in salted water from multiple Oceans. It is a reflection of the separation and boundaries that exist between territories across the ocean.
