Over twenty-eight paper, foam core, and mixed media sculptures were created to make this dizzying, surreal accompaniment to Randall Woolf's "Try to Believe." The ten students in the Visual Symphony course mixed the concept of the zoetrope, a pre-cinema optical toy, with digital video technology for this form of 'live' animation. The visual content loosely follows a modern-day 'Alice' through a nightmarish then dream-like landscape: a narrative that, like Woolf's music, is a balance between abstraction and the familiar.
