Excerpts from 5 a.m., VIDEO DOCUMENTATIOn
5 a.m. was inspired by my time in Yogyakarta, Indonesia where I found myself living on a completely different time zone to that of my uncle and his family, who lived 15 minutes drive away. Often I would be going to bed at the time they were waking up and getting on with their morning rituals – after praying, my uncle would sweep his front yard. Or at night I would be going out at the same time that they would have been going to bed. This piece is also inspired by that feeling of being just too tired to go to bed.
