A film of thoughts and visual experiments.
Nicosia,Cyprus, Spring 2020.
This film was created by Andriana during the first lockdown beginning in March 2020. In her battle with productivity at a time where the world was at a halt she decided to go for a walk with her camera everyday between 5 - 7 pm. This was to stay sane within her own rhythm of life, to document what daily life looks like in the neighborhood she grew up in and most importantly to strengthen her creative discipline.
Reflecting back on the process she undertook she came to the realisation that her creative discipline was never the thing that was in question. What seems most important today was the making space for her own creative language to come through. To come forward, get nurtured and become something. Away from worrying about the future, ownership and identity of the finished product and fully immersed into a state of experimenting and failing.
This film is a series of experiments. Daily experiments. With a voice over of what seemed important in her stream of thought at the time. And even though she doesn’t feel like the same person she was when she finished this film anymore nor does she agree with the text in full, she now recognises this as a reference point which is a liberating act in itself.
A reference point of her own dedication to her craft, her own timeline, struggle and history. And by recognising that this seed has been planted she is now in the process of growth. To progress onwards to the next steps of “Feeling Uncomfortable ” with others and for others. But most importantly in greater alignment with herself and her creative language.
