Filaments of a Circle
Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.
Filaments of a Circle: An Exploration of the Alice in Wonderland Syndrome
It’s an audiovisual series that delves into the enigmatic realm of the Alice syndrome in Wonderland. This experiential narrative reveals the intriguing phenomena of this clinical disorder, where individuals encounter fleeting episodes of distorted perceptions related to body image, object size, distance, shape, spatial relationships, and even time itself.
The title, “Filaments of a Circle”, is derived from a visual metaphor reminiscent of the delicate filaments of a plant suspended within a glass of water. This physical phenomenon closely resembles the distorted perceptions found in the Alice in Wonderland syndrome.
Drawing inspiration from the works of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known as Lewis Carroll, the renowned author of Alice in Wonderland, the project delves into the hypothesis that Dodgson may have experienced the same syndrome that he portrayed through the extraordinary journey of Alicia.
Speculated to have suffered from severe migraines, Dodgson’s personal encounters with this disorder are mirrored in the puzzling adventures Alice embarks on.
“Filaments of a Circle” unfolds through four different stories, each one an intimate story of different collaborators in different languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese and German). These unique stories offer deep insight into specific objects or situations, adding a multidimensional layer to the overall experience.
