Our Voices Are Mute 4:42mins, Color, Stereo, NZ, 2008

In Our Voices Are Mute, geographical landscapes are used to explore the concept of intangible journeys that are made through metaphysical landscapes of the mind. Anonymous figures move in slow motion through desolate and remote environments. The focus is on the figures passage as they negotiate often harsh and inhospitable terrain. At times their journeys are intercepted by symbolic images, representing visions of society, memory and need – which are explored, but ultimately rejected, leaving the figures to continue on a quest towards an unknown destination.
