Chasm (2020, 2:00 loop, silent)
3D scans transferred to 16mm film.
Chasm is a deeply personal film made in a very scary year, a year of profound grief, having experienced the deaths of 4 people close to me. In the middle of all of this, I also fell in love.
I 3D scanned my body and my partner's body, animated them, and then transferred to 16mm film.
The short loop of imagery depicts love manifesting out of total darkness and the magical and divine state love creates and how necessary it is for survivial. Ultimately it's about hope, which when I made it felt there was very little of. The film is a reminder that hope and love are there, in the world and inside ourselves.
