PARADISE LOST
Animation art, 2022

Concept

 

An alien creature wanders in a dreamlike and mysterious landscape that seems on the verge of collapsing at the first breath of wind. 

This film was born from the artist's desire to tell a recurring dream. In this dream, the unpleasant sensation of falling into the void - which we have all experienced at least once - fades into the feeling of precariousness and uncertainty characterizing our times. From the pandemic to the war in Ukraine, current events seem to mark a kind of countdown to nowhere. This alienating and dreamlike scenario is inhabited by strange and fantastic creatures who seem entrusted with the task of preserving the very essence of our animal nature.
