The Density of Dust is a video installation that uses material collection and close listening to explore a centuries old industrial building’s history and its surroundings.

History forms foundation, like earth and land—its layers are sedimented and lived in time, and collectively inform where we’re standing now, today. Using archival research and investigations of the site’s internal landscapes,
The Density of Dust aims to reveal some of the layers that have shaped this building and the area surrounding it. The work approaches material residue left behind with a curiosity and with an openness to the rest—the spectral traces that are untouched and intangible, and the material worlds that we might never know were there at all.
