Outside In is a series of still images that when viewed in order come together to form an experimental cinematic narrative. The sequence tells a tale of a young woman trapped both mentally and physically, an involuntary inhabitant of a cold institution, who wants to flee her reality. Her salvation is an alternative consciousness where she explores a surreal, outside world but also examine a landscape of the past within herself. Ultimately, it is a metaphorical tale about the futility of escape from the binds of our own mind.

All images were created with a vintage Polaroid camera using film from The Impossible Project.
