travel. Also, time seen visually in linear form is a “longer” distance from the beginning point of time measured to the end. Regardless, the point I’m aiming to touch upon with this is relevant to my thesis in the sense that our modern world, where everything is now instantly accessible, time and distance for a first are seemingly un-relatable. A perfect opportunity for me to make a statement by reversing the relationship, in my opinion. Since the tilt/shift effect is already viewed as a more affective image when the time is sped up, I assumed the logical response would be to use slower time in close-up shots. The concept behind doing this is to break the natural relationship; thus the further the distance, the quicker the time and the closer-up the image the longer the frame rate. What is then perceived is a fast-paced modern society where taking a second to appreciate whats actually around you allows time to be more meaningful and thus slower. The fast paced far-shots are not meant to be alarming to the viewer however- though they are intended to point out how “time flies” in modern life, when paired with the “miniaturized” appearance should evoke an intriguing and playful disposition. The goal behind this is to remind the audience that life should be approached almost as a game, an opportunity to enjoy the world around us and take on challenges and adventures in life without being consistently preoccupied with over-analyzing our every choice and future goal. From a birds-eye view the world seems a lot easier to manage and when combined with the detailed shots an entirely new perspective on our everyday and world can be developed. After coming up with this second draft, I realized I had to take this project further than simply a video. Where installation becomes more of a social and physical driven media, film portrays a visual channel in which to express an idea and evoke emotion from the spectator. My inspiration for this idea occurred after seeing the piece “Turbulent” by Shirin Neshat. (3) Her use
