More work based around mirroring and inverting images. This work represents a struggle with dissociation, and the push and pull of rural and cultural identity. All of these shots are stills from a longer video piece entitled “Hometown Fever Dream”
Excerpt from a longer piece that builds on the thematic play of dissociation, recovery and cultural identity.
*2 years ago I recorded the alarm system going off in a parkade. It was eerie, foreboding and I loved it. I held onto that sample and was FINALLY able to use it…so satisfying to rediscover audio and find a proper home for it*
Sometimes all it takes is seeing something from a different perspective to understand it’s creative potential. This was was so relaxing to film and cut together. The longer edit includes driving through residential streets and through our downtown area, once I finish it up I will post it.
Slow Sunday here today, spent some time reviewing and editing footage, creating short pieces that carry the hazy recollection of memories. The feeling when you try and recall a moment and all you can find are the shapes and sounds of where you used to be.
Layering images, it’s beautiful thing. A couple of video stills that I inverted and collaged together.
Recently I spent the afternoon with Bren and collected footage of him canning in his kitchen, making curried apple chutney. I’m always interested in the process, and how things come to fruition, so this seemed like an ideal collaboration. I love working with people that I know, there is something so relaxed about the creative process, and the end result with Bren turned out better than I expected.
