Project 1. FMA Oceans

April — June 2021

Over the next 3 months I will be collecting photos and videos of filipino martial arts practitioners who train by the ocean and their thoughts on why they train in that specific location. I've noticed many people posting photos and videos of themselves, including myself, and wondered if there was any significance to this act and what it means to FMA if anything at all. I have already collected a few submissions from around the world. I am fortunate to have contributors from different beach locations in the Philippines the home of FMA. Ideally I would like to have submissions from various countries and cultures to see if beach training is unifying and similar.


Depending on the types of photos received I will also be printing and displaying these on a beach in Australia as an outdoor exhibition. The final presentation will be available on my website and youtube in mid July and will be kept for a future FMA exhibition.


If you are interested in being apart of this small scale project please use this form to contact me or find me on social media.
