Sway is a series of moving atmospheric images that portray a personal resonance about life, death and birth. A hovering spirit person, a collection of bones, tree branches and a shell are all represented. Each image tells a gentle story through subtle animation, glitches and movement.
Sway is commissioned by the Australian Print Workshop.
