Abstract:

Statescapes is a practice-based project that draws upon Henri Bergson, experimental film, installation art, and affect theory. I investigate the flow of an artwork that harnesses the potentials of reflective research into memory and thought processes, through a personal lens of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy coping skills. In bringing the work to an installation context, I make further claim into a collapsing and questioning of temporalities. While experimental film has made considerable strides in challenging cinematic conventions, I offer a new media perspective on the tradition by using 3D software and morphing functions to subvert the edit and the timeline.
The anchoring question that bridges the personal with the theoretical is: How can timelines be explored in expanded cinema in a way that comments on individual perceptions of time and memory?
