ABBANDONATA is story about a woman whose companion goes on a trip, and after years away, still has not returned. It was inspired by the story of Penelope and Odysseus. I worked on Abbandonata from February 2013 through May 2015. Within this time period I created 10 video episodes, 45 “fragments,” details about the video episodes, and a short book, printed in a very small quantity with new material, related to the first video episode. Some months after the 10th video episode, which was completed in January 2015, I decided that the 10th video episode had brought this experiment in storytelling to a close. Abbandonata was based on a short story I wrote on the subway while commuting to work, and it took off in its own direction over time via video, photos and writing. While it is not conventional story-telling, it has a thread which is unmistakably a story, however mysterious, ephemeral, and intuitive. http://odilonvert.com/odilonvert/work/about-digital-videos/about-abbandonata/ Read Less
