Concept: This project was inspired by an excerpt of Simon Sinek from an episode of Inside Quest.
In the age of instant gratification, I hope that our generation can learn to slow down, taking time to find joy and fulfillment.
"Instant gratification. You want to go on a date? You don’t even have to learn how to be socially awkward on that first date. You don’t need to learn how to practice that skill. You don’t have to be the uncomfortable person who says yes when you mean no and no when you mean yes. Swipe right - bang - done! You don’t even need to learn the social coping mechanism.
Everything you want you can have instantaneously. Everything you want, instant gratification, except, job satisfaction and strength of relationships - their ain’t no out for that. They are slow, meandering, uncomfortable, messy processes."
For this project, I will be filming students walking across the campus. Props will be added to the background. The time-lapse of the students walking will reflect on the fast-paced world we live in and the props will show what gives joy to the students.
