video title: Not Far From Here, 2013, 5:00
Not Far From Here is a video montage of surreal imagery and juxtapositions played out within the inner and outer world of its character. Portrayal of light is a defining feature of the video work as it pulsates and bursts, threading its way through the sequence.
Not Far From Here is characterized by its dreamlike imagery and meticulous sound-scape. It directly responds to the power of our own imaginations.
