Created for my senior thesis project, this is the master video project or “mixtape video”, which I’ve developed the past few months from shorter videos exploring & projecting my perception & fears of what has controlled my thoughts & mind over the years.
Precisely edited to combine the layers of personal attachment felt with particular visual imagery, such as my grandfather’s Navy diary from 1963, the process of creating & projecting this video was not an easy feat.
Especially as it has progressed to be a complex interpersonal portrait of my self.
See how much you can take as the flux of information competes for your attention.
Enter my world, and interpret the information for yourself.
