Leading up to the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2012, our submission for the Migrating Landscapes National Competition included a short film titled “Kite” - a 3-minute video loop in which a black kite is flown against a white backdrop, with the camera positioned from above so that the protagonist’s face remains hidden behind the floating square. The accompanying monologue provides the only audio throughout the film. The biographical narrative juxtaposes with the anonymous character and the minimalistic visual theme, alluding to an experience that is both deeply personal and ubiquitously common. Migration is a shared story echoes with many nameless voices.
