Mary's Wedding

An experimental video I made for my slightly atypical cover of the well-known Irish traditional song, "Mary's Wedding" - I kept the lyrics as they were, but turned the original melody into dismal, by which the cheerful lyrics acquire dark undertones and new layers of meaning.
Regarding the video, the idea was to use abstract imagery which in itself doesn't convey any emotion, atmosphere or meaning in particular, but would do so as the video is being watched.

Director Statement

As a translator, writer, musician/singer and visual artist, my interests are at the intersection of music, visual art, interactive storytelling and language. I am mainly interested in using
interdisciplinary/multimedia approach to create experiences through which I am hoping to inspire others to look at reality in a different way, and notice its hidden aspects they may have overlooked before due to the mechanized everyday life.
I have always felt the need to combine different media to properly express, or rather uncover, imaginary/unseen worlds within myself and around me. The reason for this could be my eclectic educational background and interests: I have BA degrees in Nordic languages and literature and Computer Multimedia, I am working as a translator, I have learned/practiced creative writing, I am singing, writing and creating visual art and music.
