Oisin McFarland Smith

SymptomSymptom, is a dream-like state of mind which represents the inescapable pressures of society today where fears-real and imagined, and the insatiable demands of everyday life generate anxieties and obsessive behaviour. An imaginary world seemingly divorced from reality, Symptom is a power struggle between the physical and metaphysical, a manifestation of increasing tensions and loss of control over our lives. This work explores contemporary fears and phobias in society through a combination of super 8, digital photographs and video footage. It presents a visceral and unsettling exploration into conscious and unconscious social fears. The multiple channel video shifts between realism and abstraction, reflecting an increasing phenomenon of detachment in society. The film is arranged in a non-narrative form to highlight and contrast tensions between collective and individual fears, an unseen external force amplifying our vulnerability.
