100ft. Mnemonic

This film is an exploration into the journey from witness to memory. Mnemonic devices, recording devices and memento items condense and encapsulate the richness of the five senses into an objective form. In the film, the rigid cross form is juxtaposed against the erotic and fleeting details of a female ‘character’. The contrapuntal performance tries to focus the viewer on the act of memory creation, capturing strange collisions and compositional combinations between the two opening elements. There is also a phenomenal contrast between the flat and graphic nature of the cross and the depth and sculptural qualities of the body sequence. By the end of the piece, the disparate elements of the events are washed out by their coexistence in memory only to be supplanted by the mnemonic device.
