Fragments of Experience

2021 - ongoing

Fragments of Experience is my ongoing ritual of experimental practice, started in 2021. I collect videos, photographs, sound, and text, captured in different moments of my life that reflect on/resonate with my cognitive, emotional, and sensory experiences.

*

I started using the gathered archive of material to create “internal landscapes” - editing, animating, manipulating, modifying the image and sound in order to reflect the state of mind by re-working the captured memory into created spaces, accompanied often by a poetic approach to philosophical, scientific, psychological, and social issues through the use of text/voice.

*

I find that the process has an aspect of healing through reimagining/reclaiming the experiences, piecing them together as an archive of one whole story, or my relationship with life, as well as studying the value of relationships formed with nature, spaces, and objects. I’m interested in how those mental and sensory relationships reflect one’s identity, and how the personal experience of the world is affected by the connections with the environment.

*

Fragments and a Glass of Light is one of the first research films created within the project, containing the core text written in September 2021 which guides the work thematically.
