"We are the body. We are under attack." And so the body's immune system is triggered into action. A raging battle has begun between pro and anti inflammatory forces in the plasmic swirling interior of a blister.
Each sequence in Battle of Blister has been generated by human performers in an interactive film set. These animations chart the escalation from fly bite to full scale engagement. Spreading, swelling, burning, fighting... capturing the complex dynamics of inflammation; the never-ending battle between bacteria and the body.
