This project is a development of an earlier idea about images and memory called “History Irony”. In this case it takes the form of a more straightforward story rather than separate metaphoric elements. There are five scenes in this film, which will run approximately twenty minutes in total length.
The video will combine elements of film, drawing, and digital video and multi-track sound. The drawings are my primary record of the experience and form a starting point for the video and film images. The story board drawings will generate the primary images and the sequencing of the images will create the narrative. With the drawings and film I want to build a vocabulary of images and objects from which I can construct meaning over time.
