Using the parallel metaphor and counterpoint of tilt shift cinematography for aspects of duality I will develop a short film which extends my conceptual interest into image architecture and psychological atmosphere. Through a series of tilt shift studies, I will extend dissociative environmental psychology of my work beyond the dyadic of gender, identity, race, gaze by the manipulation of the presentatiuon of space and time. Threshold is a short film which presents the story of a woman looking for a new place to live. She stumbles across a sign that says House For Rent in the middle of an empty lot. She walks up to it and a door appears. Opening the door transports her to a series of other worlds where she becomes past, present and future selves. In the end, she is delivered from these alternate spaces and arrives back in the real world transformed. This work will draw on elements of Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass”, Neil Gaiman’s “Coraline”, Andrei Tarkovsky’s “The Mirror”, and Maya Deren’s “At Land”.
