Over the past two years, Chaotic Sequence has made a series of experimental shorts, each dealing with the broad concepts of vision (how we see), reality (what we perceive vs. what's really "out there"), and story (how we weave what we see into a narrative). These films have screened at galleries, festivals, classrooms, and other venues.
In many ways these films are "Chaotic Sequences," a collection of seemingly unrelated and random images that magically coalesce into coherent narratives.
More shorts are in development, so check back here often for screenings. As these films "age," we will be uploading them to Vimeo or Youtube.
Weid: Weid is the ancient Indo-European root of "vision," "wisdom," "history," "envy." A collage of stills looks at what we see, to find patterns or meanings underneath.
Secret Language: Are there messages hidden inside our everyday environment?
Memor/Mournin:Grief, time and memory
Matter:See the world on the quantum-mechanical/spiritual scale, where matter is more like an ever-changing artist's canvas than a solid thing.
The Prayer Tree:Using layers of stills, water tank photography and other footage, a car ride taken as a child is compared to the end of a relationship.
