Each year we create an intro to set the tone for SHOW.

This year we spent a week building a stark white forest on an enclosed set. We rented a specialty camera that shot at up to 1,300 frames per second, and filmed with a crew of 25 people.

THE CONCEPT
-------------------------------------
“Nothing. Does not exist.” explores the idea that the ACT OF MAKING can be more beautiful than the end product. It's about the EXPERIENCE of creation. To represent this, we took a moment in time and slowed it down so we could see it in a new way. But as soon as the dust dissipates, it's gone.

There's an idea in contemporary art that the artist is more interesting than the art. And that the story and idea behind the art makes the finished product more valuable. Often the best artwork comes out of our story and what we are trying to say.
-------------------------------------

At SVAD, we believe that we’re part of a bigger story — a story where the Artist is more interesting than the art. And it’s because we are a piece of His creation and a part of His story that we’ve become more valuable.
