The Shape of Froglessness is a silent artist film.
During a three-month artist residency in the Pacific Northwest, I wandered the land forming relationships with the non-human residents that inhabit the wild places. I experienced beauty as a warrior dispelling disparity, supplying hope, instilling courage to act, and fueling desire to make change. The lack of frog song deeply affected me, carving holes in my heart. Taking up the work by Haruki Murakami-1Q84 (English translation 2011)- as source material, I wrote an erasure poem titled A Meaningful Lump of Silence and created this film as a form of visual poetry.
In a world that is falling apart, a meaningful lump of silence floats enclosed in restricted space, an absence of sound from a transient place between this world and the world after death.
Breathing Hole is an artist film conceived by Quin de la Mer during a pilgrimage through Griffith Park in Los Angeles, California.
In a world that’s falling apart, love is the way we find comfort. Through love, we deeply connect.
