‘The Pull of the Moon’ is a video work that combines the old and new technologies. It explores the new emotions of becoming a mother through the time-based and ceremonial practice of beading. The stop-motion beadwork superimposed on the ocean landscape is a reminder of the force that pulls the tides and the rhythms of non-human time.

Carrie Allison is a Nêhiýaw/Cree, Métis, and European-descent visual artist based in K’jipuktuk. She is an active member of the arts community and Co-Chair of the Eyelevel Artist Run Centre Board.
