“And so (while they talk) let down one’s net deeper and deeper and gently draw in and bring to the surface what he said and she said and make poetry.”

-The Waves, Virginia Woolf

Noeuds d’écoute Listening Knots includes text-based installations, a video projection and a continuous performance inspired by Virginia Woolf’s, The Waves. Originally published in 1931, she called it her “play-poem”. Imagine myself as Virginia Woolf with a camera and a desire to play with bodies of text, the human body, the tide, the ocean and the land. This thought guided the making of the work during a two-year residency at the Université de Moncton, Moncton and Mount Allison University, Sackville, New Brunswick. Students, friends, the ocean and the land were active participants.
