Technology gives us infinite opportunities to design our lives everyday. We create, copy and upload leading a fast-paced existence. It is an overwhelming and numbing process. More so we lose the ability to form deep relationships because we do not have to - a better one might be waiting around the corner. This Is why the concept of “forever” scares us. We even prefer superficial friendships in order to avoid potential crisis.
In July 2018 I was selected to create a Motion Response for the upcoming Pause Fest tackling this years theme “The Future Is Intimate”. I spent the next four months shooting all sorts of materials – from glas orbs over liquids to prisms – trying to illustrate my visual interpretation of Emily Dickinson's famous quote "Forever – Is Composed Of Nows". The film is loosely based on Robert Plutchik’s “Wheel Of Emotions” which describes eight primary emotions we experience in life. Just like Plutchik I tried to create visual clusters in order to disassemble the term “forever”. "Forever" climaxes in a key visual representing a sequence of moments and emotions.
