Short Film: Cycles, Rhythms, Pulse

Online

The earth hurtles, the sun pulls us back.  The moon’s magnetism slows the momentum and creates our tides, those rhythmic reminders of ebb and flow. Patterns of movement and being, repeated celestially and molecularly, universally and atomically. Here we are, connected to everything, but each of us unique beings. This film is an exploration of nature and the power of our consciousness.

Caitríona Sheedy creates work through art, mixed media, writing, sound and installation. Her works dive into human nature, potential, connection and symbiotic relationships.
