Director Statement

The Life (2019) has change at the core. Underwater light becomes beams of grainy flickering substance in the flow. Space in immersion contains unruly elemental forces as the observer becomes a creator of imaginations.

The Life is a short film particle of nature aesthetic investigations. As such, it is part of the ongoing program One Drop of Water/ Drop Flow (1DW) that started 2008, and which has continuously been publicized in a wide range of formats.
