Magical Marsh —
The magical marsh is a fictitious place that I imagined superimposed on reality during the first lockdown: a place of dreams, of escape and reflection, of solitude too. From this dream and these thoughts a body of text was born, and this project (re)presents the attempt at visualising this journey. It is a matter of translating a set of colours, images, sounds and sensations that I have associated with the idea of this deserted palace, a place that is lived as both a refuge and a prison, the way I lived that first lockdown back in March: liberated and imprisoned.
Here is the third track (’Bloom’) music video in collaboration with Hugo Saccardy. ‘Bloom’ is a darker piece relating the struggle of living within the boundaries of the real physical world and how those impact one’s vision and experience. The visuals are opposing blue and red, light and darkness, abstract and figurative. The journey is dotted with flowers blossoming and withering, as ideas are being born and killed.
