Abstract haiku-like situations reveal the change in atmosphere on one planet, caused by the change of gravity and light.
This pulsing planet makes the inhabitants become one with each other in various ways.
it’s existence. I chose animals and creatures, which were the most interesting for me at that time, and which were appearing the most in my sketchbook.
I find it very interesting how by just placing anything on a screen, it becomes a symbol for something else. It’s a challenge to try and take something for what it actually is.
First this film was inspired by drawings I made on post-its. Than I read very poetic descriptions, but also listened to quite scientific talks about love. It is interesting how different people think about this feeling. Religion, science and cultural differences define the purpose and the heritage of love in so many different ways, even though it is based on such a common experience. Love seems to be a mystical phenomenon, that can be described by everyone in almost the same way, without using any words, still almost everyone seems to seek the meaning and the mechanism of it.
I approached the atmosphere by using different sensations and impressions of material, movement, colour but no words. The English word LOVE is not even a word anymore. It is used so often on so many platforms, that the letters turned into lines and forms and became an image, something that can be read even without knowing the letters.
The symmetric compositions and surreal situations use kitsch to keep this world abstract. I tried not to get involved too much with my characters through the production. Showing something that creates a general atmosphere describing different states of affection was the main goal, and not to influence with my personal experiences.
I wanted to capture the feeling of love without focusing on only individuals. I was also inspired by how a sun-cycle works, what states it has to go through, and what effect it has on other planets. I made myself this orbit as a base, where I set up rules that made me feel comfortable about telling a short story while not getting too narrative. I wanted the film to become something that the viewer would like to touch and be part of.
