In stating this I didn't have the capability to portray all separate concepts in my one minute animation therefore I chose the strongest and hopefully most obvious symbols and motifs which portray the closeness and distance between us and nature. I chose to focus on such a topic as it is very relative to basically all of humanity. The more our world gets modernised the more evident it is that we are straying further and further from nature and forgetting that we are part of it. We need to respect it and recognise our interconnectedness to thrive. It is evident on a larger scale in the decisions that people make, especially large corporations that put their money gain and growing business above the harmful impact that it makes on the world's resources and organisms.
I was heavily influenced by Bjork's music video Tabula Rasa with her heavy elements of organic components creating her face and figure and having these elements such as an orchid plant almost have a fluid ‘breathing’ motion effect. Also, for the capsule part of the animation my most important visual and conceptual influence was Fredrik Heyman, a 3D artist who commonly uses photogrammetry in his 3D compositions. His style is incorporating 3D scans of his models within highly technological and conceptual 3D spaces, only slightly moving the camera and adding a small amount of animation to the subjects, just enough to create a realistic scenario or to feed into a concept if needed. This more so compositional and conceptual approach more than anything influenced my animation, from (attempting) photogrammetry, using human models, placing the scene in a more technological setting and basing my concept around bigger questions on humanity's nature (mentally and literally).
