Kaleidoscopic Reverie

Prismatic flares surge his mind’s 

Rivers; obscuring hellish

Memoirs with gallant veneer.

Real war, his war: at war. 

Kaleidoscopic Reverie explores the inner turmoil of a returned soldier as, erratically, he reminisces on his experiences in the war. The fast-paced rhythm of the piece reflects the rapidly chopping and changing rhythm of his memories, as they bounce, like streams of light, throughout his imagination. Thus, explosions of colour, and the patterns created through rhythmic editing contrast with moments of decay; which slowly come to consume his hyper-real memories in order to depict a duplicitous remembrance of war: the glorified and the actual.

Methodology:

  1. Distress film negatives
  2. Project film, and record it
  3. Edit in premiere pro
  4. SFX added in post production
