  • Stranded explores a narrative of compulsion and fear about Charlotte, who is repulsed by her hair. She is also terrified of dust both remind her of her fragile mortality and fill her life with dread. Her story is animated by a succession of oddly organic images, metaphoric in their relationship to Charlotte s fear of dead skin cells. Stranded juxtaposes fear and terror with sensual abstract images. The contrast of narrative and imagery voice and text seems, on the surface, to be opposed and to run parallel in meaning. This creates, in the viewers mind, a third layer of dialogue between pictures and words where the constant visual disruption engages viewers into an active screening process.
