I Want to Feel Better
Directed and filmed by Parissah Lin
Scored by Dyani Douze (vimeo.com/dwaanz)
Voiceover written and performed by Moira Barrett
for the Gallatin Arts Festival at New York University in spring of 2013.
This film was an experimental piece dealing with the body, fragmentation of thought, image and cross sensory perception. I Want to Feel Better is a synaesthetic experiment that explores the effect of de-contextualized stimulus; of surfaces, more specifically the corporeal surface, aural faculty, and the eternal internal dialectic. The effect of these three different perceptual inputs from three different artistic cognitions (of Parissah Lin, Dyani Douze, Moira Barrett), deconstructed and re-imagined in collaboration is to create a new context for this multi-sensory collage.
