Tidal Choreography

Gina Moore & Michele Lobo

Tidal Choreography is a 3D animation film that uses experimentation to materialise socio-technical imaginaries of more-than-human justice. The film attempts to dismantle the brutality of the Colonial Anthropocene through a visceral ecological experience that co-mingles saltwater worlds on the edges of the Indian Ocean, in Northern Australia and Eastern India. Ecological intimacies are performed through crocodile-human becomings and co-becomings that attune to Indigenous and southern ontologies. We try and develop ethical relationships with technology by mingling more-than-human stories with computer generated images and sound design in a saltwater milieu that resists captivation.
