Below is the Artist Statement to accompany this short:
Impetus: a force that encourages an action or the momentum of an action already begun.
One particular force that is perpetually active, affecting all living beings on earth, is sound. It can overwhelm our day-to-day lives and is perhaps more powerful than any force of nature.
Whether it be subtle or alarming, waves of vibration inherently invoke change. The psychology behind our instinctive emotional response to sound is as vast (-), and in this video I hope to illustrate this reaction both through the mind and the physical expression of the human body.
At an early age I was exposed to organized music, which generated the foundation for this exploration. Looking more broadly at sound and the effect it has on the human psyche raised many questions about our inborn instinctive nature to it - how it elicits raw emotion. This work represents my first serious undertaking in finding a visual solution to the complexity of music in my mind.
