Experimental film, 2012
An exploration of the artistic possibilities of vertical montage
or ‘layering’; the accumulation of several layers of image and
sound. The compositions evolve from intuition and association,
giving the work the qualities of a stream of thoughts or dream.
25 Stories High leaves the viewer free to interpret its non-
linear coherence of layered images and sounds, that represent
the nature of our everyday (increasingly digitized) awareness:
a layered and associative mix of images, impressions, memories,
(unfinished) reasoning and thoughts, aspirations, ideas, past,
present and future.
