‘Tipton Meshes’, is a performative reflection that captures traces of isolation in the domestic space. Collaborating with artist and filmmaker, Joseph Potts, the experimental film portrays the contradictory feelings in isolation. The photomontages accompanied by text echo the three-minute film’s psychological journey of loneliness, emotional freedom and the desire for human connection.
