Lynn Loo is
originally from Singapore and currently based in London. Her works draw on
similarities between music and film. Her knowledge of musical structure is
applied to the thought-processes of experimental filmmaking. Her approach is
always intimate and personal; each film attempts to create a balanced entity
within a wider field of chaos.
Her films have been included in numerous international festivals as well as exhibited in galleries. She is a recipient of the Anne Raymond Louis Foundation Fellowship, Chicago 2001 and was a fellow artist at The MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire in 2004. She has also taught classes at Lasalle-SIA College of Arts in Singapore.
A Love Story
An experimental film
4 minutes, Singapore 2003
Color. Sound. No Dialogue.
An end to a relationship is a birth of mixed emotions. This is a personal journal about love. In the absence of dialogue, a poetry of abstract moving images in the rhythm of the filmmakerís consciousness.
