We and the world in which we exist are in constant motion. Though exciting and lively, the overstimulation makes it inherently difficult to find peace—we become trapped in a cycle of unawareness. However, by achieving stillness in our minds, we can detach ourselves from the chaos of reality. By experiencing a slowing of time and a shifting of perspective, we find clarity.Drift is a film installation crafted to promote peace of mind through movement. Inspired by my Japanese heritage and a budding interest in spirituality, it is a series of nonlinear, abstract video experiments conveying Buddhist philosophies. Original footage taken in Japan and New York are projected onto custom made shoji screens to bring the flat images into a physical space. The distortion of time and space of the natural world encourage the viewer to slow down, focus, and actualize the intricacies of life, providing a momentary sensory meditation.
