A Scattering of Objects

"A Scattering of Objects" explores the human connection with objects, how we define our reality using 'things'. The script and narration were generated using artificial intelligence, the 3D models stitched together using AI, allowing them to dictate the narrative and to produce this film seen as it is. As an extension on personal research into Speculative Realism and Object-Oriented Ontology, this is my visualisation of what I have learnt, as well as questions that have yet to be answered.

Director Biography - Toby Hawkins

Multidisciplinary artist traversing the boundary of fiction and documentary using analogue image processes and digital design spaces. I produce a visual dimension for philosophical concepts, analysing what exactly reality is and how people’s lives vary by their own perception of what is real. Analogue photography and film offer a platform for which to build strong narratives accompanying speculative exploration with the material imperfections reflecting my personal vision.
