“Crest and Trough” is a video exhibition with each of the seven continents being represented. The title is a derived reference to the four oceans that lie between the continents and their waves that continually unify and transmit. The space between the crest and the trough of a wave varies depending on the size and amplitude. This as a metaphor is a dynamic region contains varying perspectives of life, death, tradition and culture from each continent to culminate in New York City together, sharing the same canvas.

“Crest and Trough” is presented as a part of Light Year, a series of projected video art exhibitions that occur on the First Thursday of every month in DUMBO, Brooklyn on the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage. It is made possible by 3_Search,the DUMBO Improvement District and the NYC DOT Art Program. Light Year was conceived in honor of the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as The Year of Light.
