Rachel Arena's work uses abstraction to convey poetic representations of her lived experiences. Her work follows a structure of building and unbuilding imagery, finding a wholeness while experiencing loss.

Through careful exploration of 200 hand printed photo-transfers of moving water footage and carefully composed sound design, Rachel creates a sensory experience that is deeply personal and immersive.

Falling In describes a moment caught beneath the surface.


Rachel Arena composed the soundtrack from found and created effects.
