"Freefalling" is an exploration, seeking to comprehend the unfolding events around me and my evolving role within them, serving as a visual narrative of the quest to make sense of the world's current state. At the heart of "Freefalling" lies a contemporary reinterpretation of the universally cited plot of primary sin. Through Julia's lens, this narrative takes on a distinctly female perspective. Memories of peaceful childhood as the Garden of Eden, war omens and the theme of reset through death and white light permeate Julia's imagery, serving as potent symbols of both destruction and renewal. These elements are not merely aesthetic choices but represent existential truths – the cycle of life and death, the fragility of existence, and the potential for rebirth even in the darkest of times. By de-localizing her own narrative and globalizing her perspective, she invites viewers to find common ground in their shared humanity, fostering empathy and understanding in the face of adversity. Julia's exploration goes beyond her personal experiences, transcending geographic and cultural boundaries to become a universal reflection on the human condition.
