Single-channel HD video with sound, RT 3.5 min.
Open Your Eyes is an experimental video based on memory and trauma. I explore a nonlinear narrative that reflects the outer self contrasted with inner thoughts.Scenes cut between still photographs and domestic interiors. The hypnotic ticking of a clock provides a soundbed that secures the audience within the filmic space yet also creates a sense of anxiety.
