a cosmic tapestry
Believing in the existence of a reality beyond the material world.
In this film, I want to explore the relationship of the space, between us and everyone, the energy that we share.
All energy we have is only borrowed and one day we have to return it. In a way, it is a metamorphosis: Sun to plants, plants to animals or humans, humans to nature — ashes scattered in the ocean or buried deep in the ground, returning back to nature.
This is the reunion of all energy mixing together, leading to the void where we share the same space, memory and time but at a different speed.
are all equal,
belief in their existence is love
& love needs a reality.

Shi Yun Teo (b. 1999, Singapore) is an artist and filmmaker,
currently in her second year of undergraduate studies at the Slade
School of Fine Art, UCL.
My works express the immediacy of life, charting a
relationship between our inner world, our desires, and the
universal energy that determine them.
To acquire an awareness of ourselves, a questioning of who am I and how we will realise it. I am interested in documenting rituals, the act of connecting to our ancestors in nature for their wisdom and guidance ethereally.
Through painting & filmmaking, I create visual poetry to show a journey that evoke the notion of time, memory and space to reflect.
