This composition came together relatively quickly during the Easter period. Whilst working on another animation I screen-grabbed a particular area of interest as a starting point. It appeared to me like a cavern or landscape with an impasse. I had read recently about the Russian Cosmists, a group of scientists and philosophers who's aim was, amongst other things, to aide human evolution through technology and space exploration. The Cosmists struggled against, cultural and political prejudice in order to have their theories accepted, one of which was the use of rocket propulsion as means by which man could leave Earths gravitational pull. The animation then came to represent two distinct parts, on the right a mechanism which attempts to breach, (or possibly causes) the impasse and on the left the representation of an unspecified goal.
