In “Projects: Lost Islands” by Edwin Janzen the pubic finds themselves surrounded by four projection screens. The images are fragments of fantasy films which operate upon the fear of the unknown and the other. These images, isolated from the narratives of classic cinema, take on a new significance as they are placed in relation to each other. Together, these fragments powerfully address the imagination of the spectator, who can attempt to create their own narrative or remain fascinated by their intrinsic poetry. Janzen presents us with a captivating journey on a mysterious island where the inability to see is the key to the imagination.
