AEON is an animated short film created to be a part of the 2013 TEDxSydney conference. It's purpose is to act as a 'palette cleanser' between talks.

AEON explores the concepts of growth, loosely reflected as a cyclical journey across the natural seasons over the course of many years. We draw loose parallels between these natural seasons and the seasons within an individuals life.

We purposely left the piece open to interpretation, but we would note that in developing AEON, we did explore the deeper concepts of life, existence and the identity of the individual within the broader cosmos. Where do we fit in when there is so much that is greater than the individual.

Our subjects are drawn from nature with moments particularly relevant to the Australian landscape from which many Australians forge their identity. We wanted the piece to be emotive and textured, opting for a stylised, low poly treatment complex in execution but nicely simplistic in its actual aesthetic. We wanted to explore geometry and the reduction of things to these core elements. The design and treatment a reflection of what is core to our existence.
