Teeter portrays a codependent relationship between two people; one of whom plays the role of supporter and caretaker whilst the other moves freely, unencumbered by their own instability. The help given is often taken without the knowledge of the person receiving it; as if an invisible safety net is constantly restoring them back to a safe stance.
This piece is inspired by the physicality of teetering to the edge and then past the point of no return. And is brought to life by the sacrifice of a keeper’s responsibility to stabilize their partner.
This piece is an exploration of the physical and mental relationship between falling and catching.
