JULIACKS

Project :: INVISIBLE FORCES 2010-2011

This Finnish + American trans-media artwork of comics, film, and performance installations are about 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?
