abstraction of the essential being
This experimental short film is an abstract representation of the human body, more specifically the "essentials" to life; breath and heartbeat. The depth of time and space could span from the most minute forms of life or that of a longer journey. As well, it centers around visually rendering the tension and release that occurs both mentally and physically in the body.
This piece was filmed with a Canon DSLR and 100 mm macro lens. It was shot on a copy stand over a clear container of water on a light box. Brown and Black ink was used as well as Windex to create the colors, forms and textures in the piece.
The sounds used are recorded human breath and heartbeat.
