This short video was created as a component of Sara Mast's installation, Black (W)hole. The film was created by photographing various layers of Mast's encaustic paintings. The images refer to Einstein's theoretical physics that predict the existence of black holes within our universe. I digitally photographed each layer of the paintings and then edited and morphed them over time to create this short piece, Transmutations. For the installation the film is looped; here it plays as a traditional short film.
