This is another video in the "doll series" - surreal experimental videos with a cast of vintage Marx "Campus Cuties" dolls. My aim is in the surrealist vein...to communicate implied meanings and feelings through a "strange juxtaposition" of objects, and to bring life to inanimate objects through movement, closer perspective, and poetic associations.
And far as a message that I intended...I hope the viewer will come to their own conclusions. I knew that as a symbol, the element of water is rich with inherent meanings. I do see water as a symbol of the unconscious (thus the quote from Carl Jung), and I hope to have the courage to deal with images in the real world that connect to my own inner world and feelings.
