Paul W. Rankin

Hello. I’m a writer, filmmaker, and programmer.

My aesthetic intent is to create visual spaces in which to escape analytical thought in favour of the phenomenonal experience of seeing.

As a storyteller I want to remind people they still have hope.

I received my BA in Philosophy at the University of Queensland in 2013. My philosophical interests are in phenomenal ontology, aesthetics, and language.

What I’m working on now.
