"SHIFTING GAZE" IS A FILM AND INSTALLATION CREATED FOR LARGE SCALE OUTDOOR
OR INDOOR SPACES THAT SITS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FILMMAKING, THEATER-DANCE, 
THEATER-DANCE, DIGITAL ART, MUSIC AND SOUND DESIGN.

 

Shifting Gaze is born out of the impulse to get close to the human behind the persona.
It is ultimately a piece about identity, a film-installation about making choices, a memory in act.

 

“Shifting Gaze” is a film and video-art-music installation about CHOICE, DESIRE and MEMORY. Conceived
and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video-artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn
(Music production, composer and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (Photography and Graphic Animations).
The project nature is based in creative collaboration between different disciplines. Shifting Gaze looks at
our feeling of place and time in its most stripped down state: simply ‘being’. Hovering on the borders of
consciousness, the film is an exploration of both event and human presence. The strongest principle of
growth lies in human choice. Drawing on the fragments-presence of the body, urban construction, textures
and remains of activity, this triptych pays homage to the submerged, the transformed, the no longer visible.

The piece challenges self-expression and invents new forms of desire, breathing life into the medium and
navigating on a new notion of choice, linked to desire and memory, choice being the present, memory
representing the past and desire, the drive for a future. What we want (desire) is linked or conflicting with
what is expected from us (identity, memory), and choice is the act upon which we build ourselves.
Underneath these mirrored imageries lie many stories about limits, freedom and self-perception: stories
of the mind. A shifting gaze may allow us to interpret our interactions with others, from  grasping cues to
understanding other people’s behavior toward us.
