Basin

Basin is a video work by Leslie Peters.

Basin (2002, VHS, colour, 3 min. 58 sec) is silenced memory, an abstracted non-verbal narrative that uses both image and sound to reveal an unheard internal dialogue. The image and sound of a river takes the place of language, expressing constantly shifting emotions that range from a seemingly calm, disturbed quiet to the stuttered breath of withheld anxiety. Image and sound fold in on each other creating a confused, startled and essentially numb atmosphere. The wire fence, always looming, frames the river's action alluding to the strangled voice that holds the silence tight.
