Plaques and Tangles

For this project, Alzheimer's and Dementia are explored in an art video format, mirroring the artist's approach in line with Dionysian rituals. Firstly, through the original score and choreography, the video is meant to distill the idea of the deterioration of thoughts and the structure of the psyche at every stage of the disease. From the evolution of the psychological environment (sets) to the editing, TJO creates a work with abstract foundations that would address a complicated subject for the victim's loved ones and allow them to experience emotions too often repressed.

Adding onto that, a camera and software system tracks the movement of the eyes of the person watching and, when blinking, skips through the video. The effect worsens the further you get into the short and is meant to recreate short-term memory loss and frustrate the viewer.
