A Sanskrit word, Mayavada is the philosophy that the world is an illusion. Images of Venice seen through a Venetian festival
mask illustrate the concept of the world as an illusion.This film has an intimate quality, where the artist as narrator and image is found revealed at the
centre. The narrator role both explains and expands the imagery
within the work.
(Extract from narrator text) "I
explore the narrative where nothing exists without music. The universe
itself is said to have been framed by a kind of harmony of sounds, and the
heaven itself revolves under the tone of that harmony. In our lifetimes, I
wonder that perhaps part of the defence of ourselves as searchers for the
elemental, the natural and universal is the sense of our experience of the
ephemeral, the esoteric. Shifting visual stimulations are constantly
slipping away, only a small window of experience can be captured. Moments
which begin and end a universe."
