Visuals made by Katarína back in Slovakia over lockdown using a very slow technique - frame-by-frame animation - combined with video.
"I came to the conclusion that it is not the city that creates so much anxiety in my life, but the way I live there. It is how I structure my day, the way I prioritize. The pressure to be “productive” without taking a break for a second, when everyone around you is doing the same"
Through the juxtaposition of the character is in a peaceful environment, she wanted to show the absurdity of his erratic behaviour. The asteroids are a metaphor of the man’s anxieties and show our modern-day struggle with stress that we have inherited from our ancestors, which is not “needed” today in our life in the city.
Paul Vilas and Daša met at the beginning of 2020 at Honor House Studio in London to come up with ideas for the animation, the track was finished by April from where Kate start to work in the animations.
