The Cinematic Psyche
The piece was inspired by the non-linear narrative structures in the films of David Lynch, as expressed through the fluidity of character identities and splitting of the psyche. Pre-recorded video and live performance combine to blur the line between inner space of the mind (fantasy) and that of external (reality). The design allowed for the shifting of focus between the two realities, between foreground and background. Gradually, the two worlds begin to merge, leading up to the decomposition of logic and revealing the instability of perceived reality.
