Unspoken

Unspoken is a stop-motion animation video poetry work about distance, thoughts, and travel. Trying to combine unsaid (in terms of text and white space) with minimalistic and abstract geometric visuals. The film is inspired by suprematism, abstract art, Fluxus, haiku, and Hemmingway’s writing practices.
