“This is a love song dedicated to all the sacred mirrors,” explains Squidgenini re divine new release WATCHED BY U. “I would like to acknowledge the traditional owners, the Gunditjmara people, whose sacred country this video was filmed on and pay my respects to elders past and present. Sovereignty has never been ceded…This is stolen land.”
Road tripping and beach combing in lush and wild South Western Victoria, Squidgenini offers a beautiful tribute to an land while exploring one of the clusterfucks of our age – the constant watching and analysis of ourselves and each other in the digital space. Produced by visionary buddies Maria Bui (cinematography), Ellen Taylor (editing) and Sadie Prego (computer graphics), these women have created an entirely compelling and cinematic piece of work to be proud of.
Squidgenini says, “I feel like everything we do is always watched by something higher. Something greater than ‘us’. Even now, we are watched by all the technology we have created for ourselves. We are always being surveilled. But this seems to be how we learn and grow as humans. Life is constant communication and reflection.”
It sure is. Watch and reflect on this beautiful video now:
