Video: Halie Bahr, sampled footage from Google Maps, Industrial Surrealism

Sound: Halie Bahr, excerpt by Jeff Rosenstock

Performance: Nora Henriksen, Ali Lorenz, Severin Sargent-Catterton

The idea of this work came from comparing the feeling of being inside my body to a wood doll. Splicing between a moving body and a wood doll became a metaphor for a disconnection and a tool to reenact memories and represent previous experiences. Shadows, bright colors, street views of Google Maps, and seasons as a metaphor for change make up the slow transformation over time and the ease of pain as one allows themselves to feel.
