Abstract : “Lost Horizons: how experimental cinema and sculpture open to installation” is a diverse collection of work which explores the idea of animating a collage.The project is a circular voyage through Asia, structured in three stations: Phnom Penh, Tokyo and Lhassa.The practice of collage is central throughout the entire project. From filming these cities to the final exhibition, one medium to another, one sequence to the next, it is all a matter of cutting out forms and presenting them in a new context. Collage has engaged a series of questions - about image migrations, editing, and composition - whose answers have shaped the work.This thesis treats cities as much a subject of study as a conceptual model. Like architecture, and by extension, urbanism, the collages are conceived as enclosed spaces built to be lived in, and must enter into a relationship in order to constitute a whole.The title “Lost Horizons” is perhaps the nostalgia of this totality.
