My film/work has been an attempt to create a visible void while still maintaining the form of portraiture - an observation of what is is infinite from the inside although finite from the outside.
Beginning with the question of reality in imagery, of what creators frame and what they choose to set focus on and its importance in storytelling. What makes a portrait truthful or real?
I want to discuss in particular how distortion is used to visually intensify the perverseness of dark emotions, as well as the viewers’ perception of these fluctuations in reality.
The power of the portrait and distortion can produce a physical reaction, a reaction so deeply rooted in the human curiosity for oddity that the viewer can engage with - they become open for the visual representation of the void.
