Capsule: what we've lost

By Jennifer Dallas

what we’ve lost is a collaboration between artist using digital technologies. The score created by Elizabeth Shephard and Jasper Høiby was the seed for the character driven by Elizabeth’s haunting vocals and Jasper’s grounding bass sounds. Wrapped in a cocoon of the past we see a woman discard safety to seek the future, and step into the abyss of the unknown. Film artist Melanie Gordan created the fluid and slightly unsettling aesthetic by projecting footage onto a curtain and re-filming it several times.

what we’ve lost was made possible with the support of The Canada Council’s Digital Shorts grants.
