This video is the final product of my “Soundtrack” series. I wanted to transform photos into the images that flowed through my head whenever I heard an inspiring song. In this video, Reset, I wanted to tell a Mother Nature story, and how we have completely inserted ourselves in her terrain and her fight to take it back.

For this piece I was inspired by Jan Svankmajer’s stop motion film from 1992, FOOD, and the saying “You are what you consume.”. Through this piece I was thinking of music and how, similarly to visual art, it creates an emotional response from its audience and can greatly affect an individual’s mood. All though we do not get to decide what products are produced for us, and in a sense don’t have control over what we want to consume, we have the ability to determine what we will consume based off of what is provided for us. Those choices can affect our health and who we are as a person.

For this project, I wrote my own version of a peom by George Ella Lyon titled “Where I’m From,” injecting it with my own memories and experiences. As I reflect back on my life growing up, the viewer sees images of nature from my rural hometown. I used various visual effects to achieve a nostalgic, dreamlike look.
