Reality Fragment 160921
DirectorApril Lin 林 森
Our own histories are always under curation, and as such, our perspectives become the central point in the building of personal realities. How do these multiple lived worlds, each their own amalgamation of memories, sensations, thoughts, coexist with de facto presentations of distance, history, and totality? How is this coexistence mediated if one is an actor in the online realm? The Internet functions as yet another parallel universe, but likewise an explicit symbol of the traversing between the subjective and the objective — a symbol in the questioning of solitary truths.
REALITY FRAGMENT 160921 follows two people in their process of reality-curation, as they create their own spaces against and via understanding s of distance, as they go through the motions of growing themselves by growing their universes. We witness not only their movements, but also partake in the thoughts of two witnesses and how by seeing these two people, worlds are merged. In turn, we ask you, a viewer of this ﬁlm and thus also a witness, to pay attention to your own movements of perception and reﬂect around the ways in which you build your own world. Who have you merged your world with, and what does that mean for the subjective truths you tend to?
