”Cilia” is a series of new 3D Animated video works that playfully experiments with colour, form, and texture to create abstract organisms that float, spin, and dance in an airy ethereal realm. Taking inspiration from Australian native flora and cell organelles, these creations blur the lines between macro and micro, alive and inert, biological and machine. Elements of physical reality that are familiar to us are subverted in the new realm. Gravity shifts. Hair is sentient. Glass wiggles as though it were made of jelly.
This work was adapted to be a music video for the track “Morning Walk” by Walla C, as part of a collaboration with Electric Relaxation at Workshop Bar in Melbourne.
Another development of this work was shown as part of the Chin Chin Wall of Art in July 2018, as a projection on Higson Lane in the Melbourne CBD.
