Walker Art

All of the films and videos we watched last Wednesday were very interesting and some fascinating. There was one that stuck out strongly in my mind. I really liked the Breakaway film. To me, it represented a trapped feeling I'm sure a great majority of people experience. It seemed the woman was trying to express herself in all of these seemingly subtle ways. Such as facial expressions or slight changes or alterations of clothing. The tempo sort of lead up to the derailing of her train of thought of getting away for a while. I love how it rewound all the way back as if none of those thoughts or actions had happened at all and there she was again still trapped and unable to breakaway.
