HDTS – FROM THE DESERT TO THE SEA: THIS DESERT BUILDS THE CURVE OF THE EARTH / SEA SPACE IN DENMARK, 14/9-2012

I am sending the desert to the sea in Copenhagen, in images of vastness and openness. The desert seems to go on forever in sand, and like the ocean, the horizon is visible all the time, the landscape stretches out in all directions. This video experience explores the micro and macro parts of the desert in Joshua Tree, California and encourages the viewer to put their dreams in the open space. There is a slowness, a pause, a pocket to breathe, to be as a rock, an endlessness, a gradient.
I am sending the sea in Denmark to the desert in California. At the moment I dive down below the surface and hear the rain falling in heavy drops, underwater, I discover new secret spaces that are close to me and at the same time infinitely far away.

We received this letter from Anna Siqueiros in regards to an important decision being made today in regards to the future of Los Angeles murals. In short, the city has bypassed a carefully crafted mural ordinance which was written in collaboration with our community’s muralists, and has drafted a revised version of their own without consulting the panel of artists. This revised ordinance requires that building owners must own at least 5 properties in order to commission a mural, and also encourages the unsustainable practice of producing commercially printed vinyl as murals. This will severely limit who has access to commissioning murals, and will will result in our city generating more toxic billboard waste, rather than producing more lasting murals for generations to come. Please read Anna’s call to action and call the City Planner, Thomas Rothmanm today. He can be reached at 213-978-1891. This is a personal letter from me to you that is of grave importance for you to read. My name is Anna Siqueiros.
