ECHOES OF A FORGOTTEN EMBRACE


2016

4 min, sound, HD video

Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace takes inspiration from the concept of emotional memory, depicting the encounter of two lovers in a liminal dimension, a place where movements preserve the memory of the past and create a synthesis of the entire action.

The work has been created with a mix of body projection, light painting, real time randomization and CGI animation techniques.


Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace is one of the chapters of DROP.

A work by APOTROPIA
