Sacré is an immersive installation that explores my experience and personal response to the ocean. The film, soundscape and lightboxes represent my thoughts and feelings as I move weightlessly below the surface. The audience is called to reflect on their experience of the natural world as they are drawn into the ‘sacred’ space created. The ocean becomes a place of worship, which I aim to imitate for my audience.
