4 minutes, Found Footage and painted Celluloid
A hallucinatory montage of hand-painted and figurative film, computer-generated images, sounds, samples, grooves, and digital video - is the stream of consciousness of a soul burdened by the judgment of others.
Society's unspoken prohibition against watching or staring at others, especially those with afflictions, has inflicted an impenetrable isolation as well as psycho-sexual paranoia on those most in need of help. Technical Aids is a glimpse into the internal violence embodied in our retreat from each other.
