This is a tribute film to the amazing Montserrat typeface, recently designed by my friend Julieta Ulanovsky. A tribute, also, to the Montserrat neighbourhood in my hometown Buenos Aires, which inspired the font. An finally a tribute to Jorge Luis Borges. The text is an extract from his wonderful poem Break Of Day (Amanecer) from the book Fervor de Buenos Aires (1923).

"How it would be, if a house was dreaming"
The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture - the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers "Galerie der Gegenwart". Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves - describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself.

"Splash" is something I made to learn the basics of fluid sims in RealFlow. Feels like I haven't even scratched the surface yet, but for now I can hardly wait to get back to Mograph, Xpresso and the rest of it.
