STEP 01 – NON-COMMUNICATION
“I can hear you now – Introductive video – Four ‘Characters’ empathising with the Author”.
Since the whole project wants to be a journey into the interiority of individuals, starting from the idea that we are unable to properly communicate our negative emotions, I opted to begin from a video that portrays that lack of communication.
Using four different Languages, they communicate with me while they are not able to communicate among them. They are communicating and not communicating at the same time: what they can’t tell each other by using words, they can express with their emotional reactions, gestures and facial expressions.
They don’t feel sympathy for “the Author”, they empathise with me and, alongside visual choices and score, they represent the anxiety I often experience.
