"A visual metaphor of the positive and negative aspects of humanity, and its path on Earth."
“This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.” - TS ELLIOTT
Transience reflects the condition of every being in the universe seen through a sensitive, intellectual or even felt experience.
Even further, what humanity can’t describe, touch or identify is also linked to the same vanishing flow.
As big can be atoms or minuscule the stars, it’s all about sequences, pace, sudden apparitions or slow decay.
Humanity seems to have a unique potential in this constant struggle between life and entropy.
Whether our aptitudes help us prevail and evolve or instead accelerates our doom we have yet to decide.
That hesitation would come to an end with self-annihilation, but an end may just be a transition, a transformation.
Structured in a pseudo-timeline, the film is visually bringing a balance of positive and negative aspects in humanity. Slow or fast paced scenes, soft nature or hard concrete environments are shown as global human experience.
Initially a personal practice to bring mental concepts to life, this movie is achieved by two individuals, Julien Vanhoenacker as writer/director/VFX artist and Nicolas Vitte as music composer.
A great deal of computing power is needed to generate CGI images and the availability of the renderfarm of The Post Bangkok is a chance that allows this film to exist.
Creating these visual metaphors is a lengthy process spanning over many months. This allows ideas to be refined and become stronger in time, but also requires organisation, endurance and perfectionism, as well as the ability to stay focused on the initial intention.

THE POST BANGKOK
YA CHUNG TENG
The Hypercube is an aluminium concentric cubic sculpture illuminated with more than 120 metres of programmable LED. The minimalistic shape is designed to elicit a sense of balance and multidimensionality while simultaneously playing host to an intricate audiovisual experimental and synesthetic choreography, further extending the dimensionality through its spatial and temporal dynamics, culminating in the creation of a non-linear sensory environment.

Thank y’all so much for the likes, comments and the follows. I am really humbled.
My parents perform this art (Ebru in Turkish, Paper Marbling in English) and the footage was shot for a promo piece (vimeo.com/22325846) I was working on back then and my dad asked me to put a video together for him. This is what came out of that.
For those who is wondering how it’s done I’d recommend googling “Paper Marbling” there is plenty of info out there.
