Taryn Derlin, from the Celtic words for Oak and Tender Heart, is an aerial dance film and multiple screen video installation. In a world of mediated imagery, Taryn Derlin is a meditation on nature spirits, part of a series of contemplative, Digital Altar Pieces. I created the piece together with gorgeous aerialist artist Chelsea O’Brian (chelseao.com), a director and producer in her own right who had previously collaborated with filmmaker, photographer and visual artist Sam Taylor-Wood, and site-specific Choreographer, Director and Producer Noémie Lafrance. She is also the inventor of the Aerial Kite. The beautiful music accompanying the clip was contributed by composer and long-time collaborator Michael Neil (michaelneil.eu).
