Mood ring

In an immersive screen experience Sereima Adimate and Garden Reflexxx present a full-bodied iteration of Mood Ring (2024): a portal into memory, family encounters, bridges to past selves, conflicts and resolutions shot entirely in Fiji. Adimate’s directorial debut is a long-form visual poem made with collaborators Chiara Garrett-Saladrau, Apimeleki Rainima, Lakatoi, and members of family around Fiji. An unlikely family portrait, Mood Ring’s use of ‘emotional journalism’ (term coined by the filmmaker) foregrounds impressions and visions of female friendship as it pertains to growth.

Mood Ring is re-contextualised as a lateral experience: footage shot between 2022/23 boomerangs as a way of abstracting feelings that run throughout - what goes around comes around. This provides new entries into musings on cycles and the patterns of life, because everything happens for a reason, and then it happens again. In this way the film embodies the meaning of ‘going home’ as a part of growing up and away.

The film itself was shaped from 22+ hours of footage that included journal writing, iPhone recorded poetry, and handycam videography. Like the 360 Zoom mic recording the sounds of Sereima’s dad playing piano, this exhibition positions the audience in the middle of a spiritual emergency; its resolution, its hope, and responsibilities.
