Artist’s statement: The goal of this project was to depict myself in an abstract way using video art as a medium of expression. Although the main theme of the project was myself, it was one of the hardest subjects for which I had to conceive concise and non-literal content. I started out by fleshing out the most prominent parts of my identity and trying to think of ways I could represent those things visually. The main pillars of my identity which I wanted to depict were my bilingualism, my arbitrary thought processes, my struggles with identity and with mental health. In my efforts to find symbolic ways to represent these pillars visually, I realized that the best way to represent “me” is to show people the things that I do every day, that I love to do every day, and that I wish I could do every day. The chopped up, paralleled timelines represent how I think with ADD. Every idea is in bits and pieces that are hard to keep track of, and they come and go very quickly like the different cuts in the project. Other pillars are represented through what I say in the video, namely the use of both french and English, and metaphors as to how I perceive my identity.
