Secret Life

Two channel video projection from 16mm film, titled Secret Life by Reynold Reynolds.

"Secret Life is the first from a three-part cycle exploring the imperceptible conditions that frame life. It portrays a woman trapped in an apartment with a life of its own, but transcending the narrative horizons of human desire, the film visits upon us a glimpse of a shared and sacred reality. Secret Life is a two-screen installation that defies the ultimate metaphysical taboos of temporality by combining novel technique with intrepid philosophical vision; and daring to present that which is seldom, if ever, portrayed in any artistic medium, impossibilities are made possible through Reynolds’ signature aesthetic, a lens that can fill one with reverence for the mundane. Have you ever wondered what time sees, experiences? Without mortal assumptions about time, the occupant of the apartment is no longer limited even to unique location, but here, seen through the eye of time, space itself is now become alive, active, animated, animas. Without the context of space and time, the woman's mind collapses and neglects the organization of her experience, leaving her only with sensations. The viewer may ask: Is it her mind or is it time itself that creates the uncontrolled and uncontrollable environment?" from Reynolds' website
