"We're lost on an artificial light;
a white that blinds our human forms.
Take me away, from this moment on we’ll be as one.
But wait, I seem to recognize you.
Your face reminds me of youth.
Lifetime of changes taking place… taking place.
We're all spinning round,
letting it all go now, has never been easier.
(It's the change of seasons...the tree of life)"
":papercutz produce dreamy, ethereal, cinematic works and ideal for deconstructing and remixing. 'Do outro lado do espelho (Lylac ambient reworks)' illustrates how material can further blossom by the hand of some very talented artists. Do outro lado do espelho (transl: From the other side of the looking glass) means that this is their vision of the album's songs in their particular artistic world... it has been an ambitious project indeed. :papercutz, Helios, Emanuele Errante, Simon Scott, Taylor Deupree, He Can Jog, Rameses III, Autistici, Chris Bissonnette, The Astroboy, Jasper TX & Feu Follet all provide remarkable reworkings."

Finding your way can mean losing your mind in the process…
An isolated elderly woman, in desperate need of stimulation, conjures an infestation of silk-spinning caterpillars, thus leading her to a mind-bending epiphany.
‘Caterpillar’ is a cerebral drama, filmed in the historical Wynkoop House, famous for housing George Washington. The crew consists of highly esteemed artists working across a wide spectrum of disciplines. This includes special effects artist, Ben Bornstein (300, The Fighter), visual effects artist Greg Silverman (Black Swan), and editor, Corey Bayes (Birdman, The Knick, Contagion). From storyline through production, Caterpillar is an ode to the creative process. This film is a must-see for anyone who has ever submitted to their imagination and felt transformed by an idea.
The short film "The Me Bird" is a free interpretation of the homonym poem by Pablo Neruda. The inspiration in the strata stencil technique helps conceptualize the repetition of layers as the past of our movements and actions. The frames depicted as jail and the past as a burden serve as the background for the story of a ballerina on a journey towards freedom. A diversified artistic experimentation recreates the tempest that connects bird and dancer.

I am the Pablo Bird,
bird of a single feather,
a flier in the clear shadow
and obscure clarity,
my wings are unseen,
my ears resound
when I walk among the trees
or beneath the tombstones
like an unlucky umbrella
or a naked sword,
stretched like a bow
or round like a grape,
I fly on and on not knowing,
wounded in the dark night,
who is waiting for me,
who does not want my song,
who desires my death,
who will not know I'm arriving
and will not come to subdue me,
to bleed me, to twist me,
or to kiss my clothes,
torn by the shrieking wind.
That's why I come and go,
fly and don't fly but sing:
I am the furious bird
of the calm storm.
– Pablo Neruda

I wasn't aware of the many already existing videos inspired by this poem, but chose to finish it anyway.
