Film / Psyche's Lullaby
Psyche's Lullaby is an ongoing film project that started in 2010. Procession at Dawn is a part of the bigger whole. The project is a series of short films that are a continuous journey. Much of the imagery comes from dreams. It is a symbolic interpretation of one woman's reality. Once all the shorts are filmed [20 are expected] the last step is to film a character who narrates and unites all of these shorts. This project has to do with loss, trauma, fear, dreams, guidance, intuition and overcoming. I want to work in this format because it allows me to film piece by piece, and not necessarily in order, but instead by what is possible at the time of filming. Performance art is something I have experimented with and it informs my approach with each short; I write a performance score outline and allow participants to improvise. This allows a more organic process, and often yields to more discoveries. I also enjoy film because of all the components; costumes, props, music, choreography, cinematography and performance. It really allows me to play with all mediums. So far we have screened the new episodes at our release party and film festivals. The online release for the next episodes is TBD as we are submitting to more film festivals.

Maas has always been a fan of music and sound.
She began making soundtracks for her performance art films in college.
Since then she has continued exploring sound by working on soundtracks for her runway shows, the Psyche’s Lullaby film series & live zen yoga sounds.
This gallery highlights public art projects that Maas has worked on. Her hand in each piece varies but includes fabrication and installation. On occasion, Maas works as a teacher with community members that help create parts of the works.
