Video by Jacinda Tran '13
"Windows" is a short film about my own "exile" experience in Hamburg, Germany being an outsider from Philadelphia. By capturing the many windows I've encountered during my transit and travels to Hamburg, I hope to be able to provide a window into my perspective and my own "tourist gaze." The act of gazing not only constructs meanings for spaces and peoples, but also complicates the relationships between the spectator and the spectacle. In this film, viewing cities from behind a window serves as a metaphor about my own positionality within the greater context of German space and society. In Tim's class we've talked about exile artists' sense of liminality and in Carola's class, we've had discussions about the significance of built environments. My film serves as a bridge between these two courses in particular by portraying imagery of "in-between-ness" as well as playing on issues of identities. In the act of framing certain landscapes or imageries, windows give meaning to space, though by themselves these two agents lack such identities. Thus, "Windows" emphasizes the importance of gazing and imagining in the crafting of identities - as we discussed in Marc's class - while also portraying the archetypes of a state of exile.
