In the performance for video, Rise & Fall (Beijing), the artist, Kate Casanova, lies on the ground with a camera held to her chest. The image of the sun rises and falls with her breathing, stitching together the human body and its surrounding environment which, in this case, includes the ever present haze of pollution that hangs heavy in the Beijing air. – KC
