Heliotropes / 2010 / 3 min / HD / Stereo
HELIOTROPES documents the parallel goals of man and nature, through the most primitive and sophisticated means, to simply stay in the light.
Based on the poem by Brian Christian.
“Heliotropes” premiered at SXSW in March 2011.
The HEART REMAINS OPEN PROJECT invited people from across Australia to contribute video content in response to the track HEART REMAINS by the hip hop artists Joelistics (ELEFANT TRAKS). The final video is a tapestry of place, culture, people and landscape that paints a portrait of Australia in the 21st Century.
