All Her Bodies merges poetic storytelling and volumetric filmmaking inside of a VR world. Stories of violence, memory and interiority are recounted by women in intimate encounters where themes of writing and erasure are underscored. All Her Bodies begins in an abstract world where five women, diverse in age and ethnicity, surround you and speak a poem, acclimating you to their presence and language.
Using your gaze to select each woman, you enter her world and hear her story. Fragments of written language animate around you, as if you are inside the physical manifestation of her story being written or drawn. Soundscapes imply situations and conditions. Collectively, the poetic narratives reference issues impacting women over time and today.
