Canada / Super 8 / Sound
Synopsis: A film of short durational scenes that consist of layered moving images disrupted by a magnifying lens.
What am I looking for?
Impulsively, I’ll admit that I wonder about my subconscious… How it embeds itself into my body’s rhythm; and by extension this film. The pacing of this film is odd like me. Mentally, I am visualizing many images quickly all the time… Artistically, I must keep hold of this authenticity and ride each wave of drifting layered images. Images are the collapse of memory… memory fragments allow us to comprehend over and over we create meaning by looking. There is tension in this film created by cutting scenes short. The film is abruptly like not one moment of rest; the expression of my trust issues.
