Everything Our Hearts Desire

Everything Our Hearts Desire, 2020. Film footage of a container ship shot in the Arabian Sea.

In November 2018, I spent one month at sea onboard one of the largest container ships in the world. I sailed from the UK, via the Suez Canal, to Malaysia. As the only passenger and woman, the journey felt like a self-imposed isolation, in which I discovered the remoteness of the ocean, the gift of time, and my simultaneous independence from and reliance on capitalism.
