Mia Bromage A World Drowned 2021 Film 1 minute Year 12, San Sisto College The art of storytelling is solely unique to humankind and gives us a power no other species has. Some stories are lost to time, and some evolve into new stories. Despite humanity’s attempts to salvage stories, their true meanings are often lost or displaced in a commotion of humanity’s varying perspectives and contexts throughout the course of history. A World Drowned explores the temporality and impermanence of story through text and landscape. The text comes and goes, is rewritten and scribbled over, and eventually becomes indecipherable and forgotten; this is an imitation of the unpredictable nature of story.
Tess Bakharia The drive home 2021 Film 17 minute and 33 seconds QUT
'The drive home' is a representation of my mind as it affects my experience of the world. The medium of video imitates my experience of reality through edited documentation of places around Brisbane that have been significant to me at separate points in time. The video explores the perpetual nature of time and the way past experiences continue to influence us, even after they have happened. Through the context of driving, which creates a particularly prevalent space for contemplation and introspection, the video represents the dichotomous coexistence of the internal and external. Presented in two parts, the video juxtaposes frenzy with meditation, chaos with peace, and fixation with flux, demonstrating the tension between our inner worlds and reality.
