"On the one hand, emotion is the alchemical fire whose warmth brings everything into existence and whose heat burns all superfluities to ashes. But on the other hand, emotion is the moment when steel meets flint and a spark is struck forth, for emotion is the chief source of consciousness. There is no change from darkness to light or from inertia to movement without emotion."
(C. G. Jung CW 9i, par. 179)

Working with archetypal anima images from my dreams and within my psyche, I was attempting to project my anima figure as soul, and reveal it's influences on my emotions, a kind of valuable messenger between my unconscious and my conscious, a connecting link... a veritable Hermes... an animated dance of feminine and masculine.

This film uses early animation techniques, pixilation, time lapse, multi-passes, mattes and plates from Eadweard Muybridge's Human Locomotion Motion Studies then re-photographs the film with an optical printer to breathe life and transform inertia to movement.
