|'Voice Inside My Head'
Computer, screen, and matte.
Voice Inside My Head is a poetic investigation into the internal monologue that occurs after an emotional crisis. There is a tendency to argue with oneself, re-explain events, playing out alternate scenarios. This flashing text-image appears to the eye as a jumble, but the mind naturally arranges and patterns the words until a voice emerges as if from an internal monologue. The mind makes use of memory after-image to form meaning, similar to how meaning is formed from a jumbled recollection of events. Whirlpools of thoughts spin in a loop for a time before eventually letting go and moving on.
