Project: Lost & Absence[individual project]
︎Final sequence：listen, video, 01:17, 18/11/2019︎
What does it feel like when you are not being heard?
The story of this sequence is about a person who often keeps all the emotions to herself is talking to her reflection👥 in the mirror.
The voice︎ is nearly muted︎ so the viewers can only guess the words that she is saying through lip-reading👄.
The viewers will realize the distracting😩️ experience of unable︎ to understand the information︎ being perceived.
This is not only to let the viewers feel the lost hearing👂 ability but might also be able to remind the viewers to pay more attention⚠️️ and listen more to the people around them.
The concept of this sequence is to explore human's ability to process information︎ through perceptions, and what happens when things failed︎to work.
︎Tryouts before the final sequence︎
︎︎︎Drops, video, 00:38, 10/10/2019
A starting point for my exploration of the topic of 'Lost'. The uncontrollable droplets of water💦️ symbolize the flow of time︎; the flow of time︎ will eventually take everything away, just like the un-reversible losing of water💦️. The reverse︎ of the clip at the end of the sequence is to bring the viewers back to that certain moment they are in.
︎︎︎GottaGo, video, 00:52, 24/10/2019
Used founded footage︎ to construct a visual journey.Cutting 14 footages into 53 seconds was quite intense. Just like the overloaded information that we are receiving︎ every day, making us disappear in the flooding of data︎; and maybe this can be one of the answers to 'where did everybody👤 go'.
︎︎︎Goodbye, video, 00:43, 11/11/2019
Exploring the feeling of obscurity and blurriness- the blurriness you see can be a feeling of loss. Trying to convey this feeling through the story of a person🚶️ wandering on the street without any direction, after someone very important had left︎. The world seems meaningless, so everything is unclear and without︎focus.
