OMEN is a research based film created while journeying into an investigation  to connect notions of cinema and trance.In OMEN the space where cinema takes us is mirrored to the space produced by a shamanic drumming seance. The other’s eye pulls in and out our expectations, creating a kinetic experience from moving images,  sound and the observer’s desire.  the cinematic experience is on hold, suspended in between repetition, rhythm and duration. Then a voyage begins; an inner journey, an interior cinema.

OMEN originally is made for installation, in a completely black box and projected onto a black screen.  In Omen the body enters a complete dark cinematic environment,  creating  a decentralizing experience ,  then it urges for re-orientation. The process has taken me through questions of languages, techniques within an understanding of cinematic performative quality, as a manifestation and autonomous within the co-creation process. I use diffraction as a methodology for dissonance to happen within, where somatic experience is created by playing with temporal illusion effects, such as afterimages or saccades masking. the cinematic as quality, a place for the production of “extas”.
