Created as part of the Powers of Ten challenge, this film examines the powers of accumulation, as billions and billions of tiny crystalline structures descend upon the earth.
When dealing with the effects of snow on our lives, we forget to observe the individual elements that form this temporary layer over our world. The landscape is transformed; life is sometimes stalled to wait for the storm to pass. As these delicate flakes fall, they mirror the vast reality of our universe, with boundless stars and galaxies extending beyond our conceptual grasp. Powder allows us to take a minute to look at snow, snowfall and snow flakes from a different perspective.
Based on the real-life events of Thunder Snow 2011.
