For this assignment I used a variety of mediums to embody my mother and the influence she’s has on my life and many others. The sound portion of this piece includes clips of her favorite songs, sounds that embody her energy and quotations of hers that I find inspiring. It also includes a song that she wrote around the time I was born. This sound portrait is deeply personal to me, and I hoped to communicate the ways in which my mother has shaped who I am. The visual portion utilizes a projected video of her younger self which is reflected through distorted mirrors onto the ceiling. This is meant to communicate the idea that I am a reflection of her and the paradigm through which she lives her life.
