Qualia – You Matter to Me

(c) Isabelle Duverger

“Qualia – You Matter to Me” is a film for immersive cinematic installation about our longing for connection, through consciousness, nature, symbolism, and hope. The gaze is a visual poem, gravitational Qualia: a raw feel, anxiety shaped into surrealism, mythology, a nightmare turned fantasy, spontaneous solidarity, feelings of solitude, suspension, an embrace, the beginning of a smile, a hand falling and rising again, time and the fates symbolizing the interconnectedness of the past, present, and future in the tapestry of life.
