Great Beauty travelling to spaceNASA will launch a spacecraft to an asteroid called Bennu in late 2016 in order to bring a small sample back to Earth for study. Their #WeTheExplorers campaign invited the public to take part in this mission by expressing, through art, how the mission’s spirit of exploration is reflected in their own lives. Along with other works of art, my film 'The Great Beauty' will be saved on a chip on the spacecraft and travel to space!
Only Lovers Leave To Die - short animation film
While making the Lovers, we've tried to break all the possible rules, until breaking the rules became a rule itself, and then we've just embraced chaos and randomness as the essence of our filmmaking expression.
The film was conceived on principles of randomness and analogue generative cinema. It was made by observing and measuring random objects, and using the measurements to determine film's length, its technique and film language. The objects were concealed in a secret box by a randomly chosen art director and disclosed to the director just a few days before the film shoot.
