When the word freedom is said, what come to mind are things that flow, independence, having no limits and no restraints.
This project is an abstract video which is focused on the emotion or feeling of freedom. Using symbols, colours, and other objects I wanted to portray this feeling with things that seem to ‘flow’. It is specifically set in a beach where everything is natural, i.e. the sand and how it can flow easily through your fingers, and the water, how the tide flows up and down as it pleases. As well as the constant wind that makes her hair flow.
Shades of blue are visible throughout as it is a colour that represents freedom; - the ocean, sky, and the fabric. The blue fabric is almost transparent – as if there were no barriers, as oppose to being opaque, which seems restricting and un-free. In the beginning she holds onto it, letting it flow behind her. Confetti is blown off her hands where it flows up into the sky caused by the wind, which is like a flock of birds flying high above and also a known symbol to freedom. The feeling of letting go, to be free and to runaway is shown at the end where it overlays showing an open sky with no limits.
