De Huid Voelt

Description

My piece ‘De Huid Voelt’ (Skin Feels) is the start of a triptych observational video portrait in where I address my changing perception of my parents and of my hometown. Three short films depict the struggles of observing the aging bodies of my parents, the fear of entering my old neighbourhood park at night and my attempts to leave my hometown behind. In this project I want to express the difficulties concerning letting go of and simultaneously holding on to the environment one grows up in. The set up of the three pieces is the same, the images I shot are accompanied by my own voice over narrating the viewer the importance of the location or subject on screen.

Essay

Introduction thesis:

This thesis analysis the steps I made towards observational films. It examines how previously disparate elements; observational writing and spatial and emotional evocative cinematography, became congruent in my piece ‘De Huid Voelt’ (Skin Feels) that lead towards a triptych observational video portrait in where I address my changing perception of my parents and of my hometown. These short films depict the struggles of observing the aging bodies of my parents, the fear of entering my old neighbourhood park at night and my attempts to leave my hometown behind. In this project I want to express the difficulties concerning letting go of and simultaneously holding on to the environment one grows up in.
