Sliding Door is a four channel video installation shot during a residency at the Vermont Studio Centre in one of Vermont’s mountain forests. In Sliding Door, a figure precariously drags an abandoned red door across the bank of a rushing river. Once the door reaches the bank, the figure retrieves the door to safety. The figure is seen mimicking her own movements in a mirror image while the door simultaneously floats among the water in the river. Washed up on the edge of the river from an abandoned mill, the sliding door is seen as a metaphor for a crossroads or a break in time where ritual, struggle, and movement are explored.
