  13. CAUSTIC LENS 04:48
  14. USA 2019
    Directed by: Christian Merrill

    I create experimental animations that distort perceptions of reality. These works are focused on creating composition through shape, color, time and motion. Sound plays a very important role in my animation. Audio sound waves are used to drive the momentum and the visual aesthetic of the piece. Syncing sound and movement is key to creating engaging and multi-dimensional animations. In this work I explore the screening of 3D environments on 2D surfaces, thus challenging our preconceptions of space. These environments represent reality, but are physically impossible outside of the computer. This is represented through infinite reflections or many elements from various sources composited onto a single image. Computer software is essential to creating my work, and my experience working inside of the software is often reflected in the finished artwork. The computer influences my work both procedurally and conceptually.

    Have you ever considered about what gifts that we all had from mother nature? How do we understand what are those gifts and how to evaluate them? Our most basic instinct is to use these gifts in a certain duration. However, this manner of over-using nature itself tears apart the idea of "gifts." The damage that humankind makes continuously has many outcomes and this short animation is trying to make people face with their own actions. Mainly, the emotions of greed, selfishness and arrogance are shown in the animation. These are the emotions that makes humankind feel themselves more superior than everything; in this case, nature itself. In short, the aim of this animation is to create an awareness against the long-dated threat of humankind when it comes to wielding the gifts of the nature.
