Halfway done, but finished...
At the surface level this work is a loose interpretation of the poem "Creating the World" by Czeslaw Milosz, but its main purpose is to refer to Milosz's opinion about the film, as "a medium that claims to show the reality."
From the very beginning techniques of modeling and 3D animation very strongly aspire to play the reality.
To highlight a peculiar inability to reflect reality by the film, we focus on the "struggle" of generating an image. We capture the process of rendering "in statu nascendi" ("under construction"). Therefore we try to intercept this moment of the creative process, which is the most ephemeral - a temporary, piecemeal render phases (mostly global illumination pass). In the course of animation every next frame is more accurately rendered but still far from the target appearance. By analogy to chemical processes, the term "in statu nascendi" refers to the intermediate products of chemical reactions, which can not be isolated from the environment of this reaction. They are therefore just "under construction", and then disappear.
Sound designed by Adam Witkowski is a direct transcription of the image made with a software dedicated for blind people.
Work commisioned by The Baltic Cultural Centre as a part of exhibition "Art is generally suspicious".
