An ode to planet earth, solely told with organic fluids and a tiny crystal ball.
Sometimes, the complexity of simplicity makes us fail to preserve the fundament of all we are and all we represent. But reaching awareness is not about the end, it is about the beginning. SINGULARITY takes us back to zero hour, 4.5 billion years back in time. It is the story of an indescribable hazard and a singular fortune: the fortune of being a human.
This is organic FX from terracollage. Household ingredients and ink. Strictly 2D, no CGI.
Headphones highly recommended!

Creating the images for “Care", small droplets of ink were placed in a drop of oil in suspension. When releasing in the water, the slowly evolving mixture of oil and colored ink created interesting organic structures. The process has been repeated with some inertia in the water and these structures started to somehow dance, fitting nicely with the music flow. All the images have been filmed with macro lenses and a glass of water.
RADIOLARIANS is an experimental macro short which is exclusively made with ink, alcohol and rapeseed oil. It shows extraordinary organic forms and figures which are almost invisible to the eye. They remind one of Ernst Haeckels Radiolarians which are part of his fascination monograph “Artforms in Nature” from 1904.
The behavior and movements of these animate beings are captured with a high resolution camera and a macro lens. By inverting the picture in post, the rich colors and textures of the elements are brought to life. What you see are drops of ink, decomposing into thousands of microscopic dots which behave like an organized entity in perfect order. A tiny mesh going into rest position, sinking in a sheen of oil before finally disappearing.
