Title:
Imagine

Author:
Lynn Dennison

Description:
Imagine 12.10 mins, https://vimeo.com/340219812 is a video installation on two screens, exploring the dichotomy between the negative and positive aspects of nature. During a cross disciplinary residency at Birmingham University, I worked with David Hannah, professor of Hydrology; whose research paper, Summer After the Floods, was an examination of the social, economic and environmental dimensions of flood recovery and resilience. Working with the idea that one way we interact with nature is through its destructive power, this research into understanding the impacts of extreme weather events and natural hazards on human health and wellbeing, has been instrumental in informing my subsequent work, including 'Imagine,' a Video Installation on two screens, shown at Palazzo Papafava, Venice Biennale 2019. This multi layered work explores the dichotomy between the negative and positive aspects of nature, examining the idea of the healing power of nature through the use of nature meditations, juxtaposed with the threat and experience of flooding.
