Canada 2019, 6’31”

Textures, repetition, vibrations, oscillations and sounds: the image is heard. Scratched and scarred photos form a cascading avalanche of shapes, a choreography of people performing repetitive tasks, their silhouettes etched directly onto the surface. “No Objects” is the work of an artist who views the image as a hybrid of matter and motion. Gestures and sleight of hand are everything. Bodies are transformed by light as the moving images in this experimental short speak for themselves, their impact amplified by an intense sound design.

“Entropia” is a container of three parallel universes where three girls are living in different circumstances. One of them represents the animalistic side of human nature, one of them is a consumer fulfilled with her own frustrations, and the third one is living in a futuristic room where she has to run to keep the system work. Suddenly a fly flies over the three universes and makes a bug in the system. Because of that bug the three universes start collapsing and the girls are able to move towards each other.
