[Coming Soon in May]
700 to 730 is an interactive cinema piece and a video installation that allows the audience to create montage through the experience.
One audience/player is invited in an enclosed space, a one-man theater, with the projection screen in front of them and a control station on the other side of the space. On the control station is a wooden box that looks very much like a vintage radio. There are two knobs on the side of it that the audience/player can tune to change the shot being played on the screen.
The narrative of 700 to 730 is about a 7-years-old girl who lives with her grandparents in an apartment at a home for senior citizens, and how solitude as an external state of existence blurs the boundary of life and death.
This is my M.F.A. thesis project in Game and Interactive Media Division, School of Cinematic Arts, USC.
