Convolution

Convolution is the first collaboration between London based act Kinkajous and Austrian animator and director Marco Fontan. In it, we witness the birth of a world with all its intricacies. It takes shape and grows with a lot of complexity and darkness but also harmony, in a constant state of motion. While the entire video has an intimate, narrow focus, the final scene reveals a much greater landscape, challenging our initial perspective. It reminds us of our plurality; a sight full of hope.

Director Statement

When exploring visual concepts with computational tools, art can get very sterile and artificial. As an observer of natural phenomena, I am interested in bringing turbulence into my work. I like to explore the edge of clean mathematics and chaos, merging the artificial and the natural.

Convolution follows those themes, taking us on a journey through landscapes of sound and forms. Evolving structures of light and shadows make an introduction to an otherworldly set made up of intricate textures. Progressively, all elements start fusing to form an entity, giving birth to the protagonist structure depicted in the opening scene. As it grows and elevates, we become aware of a world far greater, inciting reflection and contemplation, the end is the beginning.
