As a final thought on Baudrillard and his ideas, I present to you my final work of the term. Initially my ideas for a final project on simulation was based on making a pre-synconronized sound film more contemporary by adding sound I found fitting. I ditched this idea because I felt as though I could do something more relevant to my life at the end of a term, and because I didnt want to sit in a basement editing during the unnaturally warm days of march. The piece is hard to watch; it leaves one confused as to what it is that was watched, and why exactly anyone would take the time to make it. I attempted to give a sense of some impossible reality in a familiar space - moments that jump from day to night, winter to spring. This, in a sense, is how memories of recent times take shape. Like a simulation, its fleeting, brief and flawed. With that, see how the memories from late winter term at Lawrence took form. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2f8SKfnTWg thanks!
