Void Vision (2018 | 8 minutes | COLOR | SOUND)

VOID VISION is an abstract science-fiction short in which the real and the simulated are equally constructions; a space where doubles, twins, duplicates, re-creations, and copies blend into one another.

VOID VISION combines a science-fiction sensibility with the aesthetic of early CG animation experiments. Rotating arrangements of lasers and duplicated women fade in and out on screen, appearing as both photographed scenes and CG-modeled recreations. The audio track, incorporating text from Philip K. Dick’s VALIS, features an improvised electronic score and a voice espousing theories about the mind and the universe.

VOID VISION presents a consideration and re-consideration of a reality; a cold fever-dream of paranoia and reification.
