Ariadne's Thread

12mins | DV NTSC | Colour | Stereo | 2009 | Canada

SYNOPSIS 

The video takes its name from the Greek myth with the eponymous title wherein the clever Ariadne saves her lover, Theseus, from Daedalus' labyrinth by giving him a ball of thread. From one architectural maze to another, the red thread leads the viewer on a journey that weaves in and out of a dream like state, and in and out of an occasionaly intrusive present reality.
