Modus Operandi / Sea&Waltz

Single-channel video, 6:02, 2012-2013

From the series "M.O.". Modus Operandi (M.O.) is a Latin fraise used to describe a method of operating and people’s behavioral patterns. It is not always possible for an outside observer to grasp the logic of others’ behavior. Their actions assume the nature of the mysterious ambiguity that is open for any interpretation.

The video was shot during the author’s stay at the art-residence in Mexico. Women move, getting into the rhythm of the waltz. They are clamming at seaside.
