Thought Forms

Thought Forms is an immersive experience that blends found footage, poetic narration, and ethereal music. The composition begins with fragments of found footage, showing people and their interactions, with their faces partially obscured or revealed through the interplay of light and darkness, interior and exterior. The poetic narration unfolds in fragmented verses, creating a continuous internal reference, alluding to an entity that embodies the essence of color and portraying the blue hue as a conduit for introspection and transcendence. The poetic exploration and metaphorical connection to the human and spatial dimensions find solace and refuge within the redefined boundaries of liminality. The images and audio, working dialectically with each other, are juxtaposed with abstract sequences, transporting the viewer into a blend of non-linearity and dissociative assemblage at the levels of image, sound, and text. Throughout the video, the ethereal music seeps in, enhancing the emotional impact of the visuals. A mixture of ambient textures and electronic rhythms serves as a guide through elements that are complete and imbued with meaning, form, and thought.

Director Biography - Carlo d'Angela

Director Statement

Currently I found myself immersed in an environment that challenged me with the conceptual foundations of form, granting me a deep understanding of the transformative power of practices. Now, I am trying to absorb the surrounding reality and channel it through the experiences I live, which may not necessarily relate to the artistic field. I then process them into a form that becomes defined. Lately, my research direction focuses on the fusion of sound and image, coexisting as a mesmerizing dance. They are not separate entities but intertwined dimensions, where each pixel carefully traces an audible brushstroke on the canvas of our perception. It is within this symphony of senses that I find my space, seeking to create a sensory experience and explore diverse semantic levels. My aim is to leave an indelible impression on those who interact with my work and, above all, to leave a mark and make a lasting impact of my existence in this world.
