God Knows is a short film that was commissioned by Glaxo Smith Kline for the temporarycontemporary season at The Royal Academy in London, 2008.
It is a dream/nightmare sequence representing a stream of consciousness. The unrelated narratives are conjoined by effect, emotion and sound. By combining these, it evokes fear, anxiety and disturbance in the viewer. The scenes are metaphorically painted to infuse a visual reflection of events in my life. I titled the piece God Knows to reflect just that.
