"The paradoxical nature of this project is rooted in its innovative approach to highlighting the pressing issues faced by women in contemporary society. It employs the human body as a powerful metaphor, effectively mirroring the current state of the world. This choice serves as a stark reminder that, despite progress and advancements, women continue to experience various forms of confinement, discrimination, and mistreatment across diverse moments, places, and historical periods.
Through a creative process that embraces the use of analog film, this project embarks on a unique journey. Analog film, with its tactile and time-intensive qualities, symbolizes the persistence of these issues throughout history, much like the enduring nature of celluloid film in an era dominated by digital technology. This choice of medium carries a profound message in itself, emphasizing the need to slow down, reflect, and resist the rapid pace of societal change that often perpetuates gender inequalities.
The project's visual narrative unfolds through the lens of analog film, capturing the raw, unfiltered essence of women's experiences. It seeks to draw attention not only to the challenges women face but also to their unwavering strength and resilience. Each frame is a testament to the constant effort and resistance required to break free from the constraints that society imposes on women.
By utilizing the human body as a canvas and analog film as the medium of choice, this project transcends the boundaries of traditional art and storytelling. It invites viewers to engage with the profound paradox of our times - a world marked by progress and regress simultaneously. Through the emotive power of analog film, it aims to inspire dialogue, empathy, and action, encouraging society to confront and dismantle the barriers that continue to confine and mistreat women in all corners of the globe."
