A common theme I explore in my work is that of subconscious expectation and our perception of reality. Often times, we expect that what we see around us is the truth, just as if we were to see a photo of a mermaid, we would assume it was a lie, altered somehow, because we have not seen anything like it with our own eyes. In this project I intend to propose the idea of an alternate physical space, that will appear as quickly as it disappears, and will lead both the protagonist and viewers to become aware of the expectations we hold our reality to and even wonder about different dimensions, ultimately asking the viewer to question wether their truth is a lie.
To create this video I am using Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, and After Effects, as well as Maya animation software. The video will begin with a subject walking down the street, until he is suddenly thrust into a virtual 3d world.
