this work for me has been an exploration of my mind and body throughout the past years and the changes that have been surrounding me in turn. i have found it difficult to concentrate on anything else than how the world has shifted around me and when creating this work I reflect on that distraction. the piece is a self reflective piece for me but also works to create self reflection from the viewer. the piece explores the idea and feeling of entrapment but also the solace and mindfulness we find from this new universal (i believe) feeling of constraint. the work draws inspiration from artists such as pipolotti rist, sky hopinka, and kelly gallagher. i used mini dv footage and single frame animation to create an added human effect and personalization. the work is meant for the viewer to sit with and question oneself and the world surrounding us.
