This is the master video project or "mixtape video", which I developed over the last year for my thesis. Formed from shorter videos exploring & projecting my perception & fears of what has controlled my thoughts & thus my mind over the years, it has many physical & conceptual layers.
Precisely edited to combine the layers of personal attachment felt with particular visual imagery, such as my grandfather's 1963 Navy journal or an iconic ad, the process of creating & projecting this video was not an easy feat.
Ultimately, it has progressed to be a complex interpersonal portrait of my self.
See how much you can take as the flux of information competes for your attention.
Enter my world, and interpret the information for yourself.
