Abstract

How do I recreate the feeling of a storm in a way that the audience will be able to connect the experience to their own personal storms? My project concept is an audio-visual-physical installation of a storm. I will be combining various forms of storytelling, specifically sound and video, to communicate how it feels to be very suddenly and violently confronted with one’s own mortality and fears. Instead of telling the story of the storm itself, I am using its structure to communicate a tonal journey. Despite the negative emotions that one can experience during and after a storm, I intend to make an experience that is ultimately cathartic. It is important to me that my audience leaves the installation knowing that any storm they are going through is temporary. The installation will consist of a score made up of collected sounds and videos projected on the walls. It is my goal that by drawing from my own personal experience with a natural disaster and making that experience accessible to other students, I can ultimately prompt empathetic connection and discussion.
