Director: Michelle Marquez
Run Time: 3:09

Synopsis: This experimental film provides an emotional roller coaster experience that was musically and visually designed based on a neuroscience research project that correlates a mathematical parameter (fractal dimension) of sounds and images with the selective triggering of emotional states. Enlighten yourself by looking at the world from your personal point of view while dreaming inside your curiosity. Michelle Marquez, a fifteen-year-old scientist and artist, conceptualized, produced and directed this short experimental film in collaboration with Patrick Gregory and music of Lincoln Mitchell. She aims to challenge the traditional division and separation between Science and Art. Her three-year journey in research has revealed the deeply rooted biological connection that the human brain forms with complex images, sounds, and music. Her award winning neuroscience research correlates a mathematical parameter (fractal dimension) of music and/or images with the selective triggering of emotional states. She used her scientific discoveries as a platform to share her dream of finding a place “Where Science Meets Art.” She used drones for aerial photography to capture images with a special camera converted to use Infrared (720 nm). Those images were blended with original music created especially for this film, which was ‘mathematically’ directed by the teenage producer. She is breaking the barrier between Art and Science to create a unique visual and audio experience of time perceptions and emotional dimensions. She invites viewers to ride this emotional roller coaster while dreaming about a place “Where Science Meets Art” at the James River.

Michelle Marquez

Michelle Marquez is a 15 year old Sophmore at the Math & Science Clover Hill High School located in Midlothian, Virginia. At 11, Michelle developed a passion for examining human perceptions of art using scientific correlation, discovering the mathematical structure of sounds that triggers selective emotions. Michelle was able to prove how the certain types of music affected parts of the brain and found the responses were universal across cultures... Read More →
