This project is an animated stop motion music video to a song named "Judith" (like the same-titled painting of the Vienna Belvedere Art Gallery).
It is an inner conversation with the painting of a young woman in a museum full of depictions of female bodies and character traits, all of which were drawn by men. It brings up various projections like "..whatever I touch gets lonely" and subtly exposes the myth of the 'femme fatale' as a male projection.
The video consists of three different components 1) analogue scenes of the singer in Istanbul and on Burgaz Island shot with a Lomokino camera on 35mm film 2) surrealistic stop motion scenes shot digitally in a photo studio 3) abstract scenes of jellyfish and light effects on analogue film that were animated in the editing process.
The video shows the singer disappearing into crowds in the city of Istanbul or asleep in a surrealistic dreamscape. It is supposed to show the passivity and numbness such popular narratives eventuate in for its subjects and inspire a search for their own intuition.
