Getting Lost, 2015.

Stills from Getting Lost (Talia) and Getting Lost (Fiona). Video and Sound. Diptych. 2015.

 

SYNOPSIS:

Getting Lost came about on a trip to Maine that I took with my friend Talia in August 2014.

There were parallel’s between our situations, although each situation was very different. We were both seeking solace in environment and peace in everything else. Solitude and companionship do exist side by side.

There were elements of loss and struggle. With these powerful conditions, comes the part when one gets lost, purposefully, or by accident. It is hard at times to stay in the moment; in the here and now; without mind going back, or, moving forward in quick succession.

One masks and shields. Emotions lie and rise. Overpowering sensations. We reveal and then we hide. 

The internal monologue never stops. It is like the sound in the air that never goes away. It is both loud and ambient. It is inside and out.

With Getting Lost, I am seeking to explore our relationship with environment, but also the relationship that we have with ourselves.
