Parallel Realms

Parallel Realms explores the experience of mentally projecting oneself into a movie while watching it. Relating to characters on screen influences one’s personality as well as confuses real memories with what has been watched. Ryn physically puts herself into this position by projecting scenes from movies and inserting herself as a character into the story. She exists as both a fanatic who wants to be a part of this fictitious world, and a critic making a comment on the absurdity of the charismatic influence film has over its viewers. In this dichotomy she plays both the voyeur and the exhibitionist. The soundtrack in the video is a collection of dramatic tracks taken from movies to emphasize cinema’s ability to manipulate viewers’ emotions. The soundtrack runs twice as long as the picture, illustrating the influence sound has over perception.
