The walk inhabits our being and governs our social space. Side by side or face to face, it implies an exchange. When combining everyone’s specific pace, a hidden harmony arises. Reconnecting with Eadweard Muybridge‘s work, this film projects us into the frenetic rhythm of the steps of fifty walkers.

Separate projections combine, unifying, becoming whole.

Twelve animated projections combine to develop a rhythmic dialogue exploring the intrinsic relationship between sound and image using 16mm film, paint and a projector. Responding to a hand-drawn soundtrack, each projection is individually created by painting and scratching directly on 16mm film stock.

4:3 is available as a short film, an immersive installation, and in 360˚.

Canada

Based on the ancient animistic beliefs and nature worshipping rituals in Mongolia and Siberia, the film is about the indigenous worldview and wisdom: Nature is the homeland of human being, Tengri is the deity and the father sky, Earth is the mother with rivers nourishing all beings, paganist and pantheist gods co-exist with all mortals. Against the backdrop of the modern existential crisis and the human-induced rapid environmental change, there is a necessity to reclaim the ideas of animism for planetary health and non-human materialities.

Belgium

An allegory bitterly representing the innate violence, the bloated egotism, the indifference and the utter confusion in the mind of certain humanity inclined to prevarication and abuse. Built as a music video, it is like a distorted echo of a disquieting, disenchanting and lucid nightmare. Fundamental allegoric elements are: idyll, rose petals, zero and one, noise, void. First episode of "aim | nothing happened | reaction" trilogy.

URBAN SPHINX is an animation short film that creatively documents the presence of street art in Valencia (Spain) between 2018 and 2019. In URBAN SPHINX, these pieces of ephemeral art are animated by connecting each image like the frames of a film. All these faces look at us with wide-open eyes, as if they were telling us that we exist, but we might not exist —and the world would keep on turning.
