"Selfies Of A City"

This short video depicts how our increasing reliance and integration of technology in our daily lives shifts our perceptions of our surroundings, environment and ourselves. Although technology is intended as a medium for strengthening communication, it has become an alienating force in our lives that can distance us from one another and disrupt the balance of our internal and external selves.

"Sensory Intent"

 

A short video capturing the sensory experience of New York City. 

This video is an abstract representation of studio 54- a manufactured documentary of the mind (if our mental behaviour could be extracted and documented). Intercepted between hallucinations are foreshadowing darker clips that represent the downfall of fantasy, grandeur and excess. These darker themes are juxtaposed with the superficial and stereotypical disco dancing to warn the viewer themselves of the inevitable death of the dream they are experiencing.
