“At the high speeds of electric communication, purely visual means of apprehending the world are no longer possible; they are just too slow to be relevant or effective.”
In McLuhan’s writing, he mentions the linearity of space and time as presented by many mediums in our time. In my experimental film, “Rebirth”, I created a world where time is fluid and space is irregular. In the general scope of the film we follow the ending cycle of a life but come across the start of another. The film explores a theoretical examination into the realms of purgatory, the notion of an “in-between” and ultimately the concept of life after death.
I decided to begin my approach with sound. I used several programs to mix together a soundscape, which I thought encompassed a mood that I could then express visually in the film.
