About the Film Concept
Instead of predicting how technology may develop in the future, I was inspired by contemporary philosopher Catherine Malabou and specifically her notion of human perception carrying the characteristics of elasticity and lucidity. With that in mind, I took an alternative conceptual approach to the brief.
In a fictitious world METAQUA (beyond water) water is the new medium for communication, a metaphor for visual communication: water can be touched (watching TV, like touching an iPad); water can be pure or filtered (this represents various kinds of information and contents); water has a cycle, from a drop to a river to an ocean (as the individual experience of watching a programme can be shared by millions).
This film envisages the future ‘television’ landscape experience: instant, engaging and therefore fully immersive, touching and powerful.
