a w a y is about finding a place of stillness separate from the world of business and constant motion. The beginning depicts a series of dark, blurred, interior photographs sequenced speedily to denote hurried movement. This movement can also be understood through the subtle sounds of incautious interior activity that crescendos in this portion of the video. The startling white and silent moments that follow are meant to be disruptive and even uncomfortable. They may indicate a glimpse of something that both draws and repels the viewer—a light too bright to be coherent by someone with eyes accustomed to darkness. The remainder of the video transitions to an acceptance of this light in a meditative and transcendent approach.
What does it mean to get away and is this a worthy endeavor? I want this video to ask these questions, allowing the viewer to process them visually.
