FREQUENCIES is a multimedia documentary that explores the importance of holding communal spaces for mourning and meditation amidst a global pandemic, personal loss, and spiritual unrest. Through a series of intimate interviews and photographs, the artist and collaborators navigate themes of grief, shame, and intergenerational practices of compassion in a collective effort of recognizing and repairing “breaks” within their respective narratives.
The project reflects the philosophy of kintsugi by demonstrating the healing process as beautiful and significant to the history and growth of the individual. Audio interviews are graphically visualized as a gold waveform (frequencies) throughout the piece, which takes on the characteristics of a living scripture or auditory pulse that is later integrated into the collaborators’ final portraits. Their words of healing become a part of who they are, and how they see themselves.
FREQUENCIES invites the viewer to hold space for the collaborators and themselves as we collectively meditate upon grief, mortality, and spiritual perseverance.
