This Finnish + American trans-media artwork of comics, film, and performance installations revolve around a fiction that presents the relationship between a character's internal psychological and external physical world. As the story goes, Rody Plane is a young woman who has been pushed around by her caustic environment. She deals with this by retreating into a dissociative inner world, letting the invisible forces take control. Ultimately, Rody must take action. Will she be subsumed by the insanity within and without?

JULIACKS embarked on this project while on a Fulbright Fellowship to Finland for Performance Art and completed the work within the Professional Artist's Development program at the Royal Art Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.
