About this submission

My background in literary studies and my fascination with Virginia Woolf’s works have always inspired me to explore a more feminine, fluid, stream-of-consciousness and multi-sensory way of expression. During the summer of 2022, I followed the USC diving team and investigated the diver’s individual perception of and approach to this mentally and physically demanding sport. I found the sophisticated psychological process they go through compelling and the motif of “breaking water'' aesthetically poetic. I decided to utilize both narrative and documentary footage I shot and sound design to create an immersive experience of their mental journey without any dialogue.
