THE NEBULA ROOM (2015)
Eleanor explores her fears and anxieties within the stark white walls of an art gallery. By allowing her senses and perceptions to expand and contract like interstellar dust particles absorbing and emitting light, she recognizes her authentic self, taming her tenuous grasp on sanity from within her own inner nebula – all through various art mediums.
A 5-minute “proof of concept” short, Jaclyn’s thesis project (which was shot this past February 2015 in Fairfield, Iowa) will be completed in May of 2015 through the David Lynch Masters in Film Program at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. This short will be a visual teaser to accompany a completed screenplay for the pilot episode of a new 30-minute television “dramedy” Jaclyn created titled Down The Rabbit Hole.
DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE (2015)
No two people can view a piece of art and perceive the same thing, just as no two people perceive themselves or the world in the same way. In Down The Rabbit Hole, Jaclyn explores the nature of the perception of the individual, society, & the natural world through the lens of art, its importance in all aspects of life, the exploration of mental illnesses and imbalances, as well as how it’s funneled into the creation of art, the hierarchies within the art world, and personal self-discovery through conflict and renewal.
