An experimental film about creativity, inspiration, self-imposed pressure and the vulnerable vision of an artist.
The Synesthete is an experimental film about creativity, inspiration, self-imposed pressure and the vulnerable vision of an artist. The film is an attempt- in the form of personal observation and visual experiments based on digital technology- to understand, articulate, define and control the chaos, obsession and psychological preoccupation of the artist. Is it possible to quantify and synthesize synesthesia? The Synesthete is a journey that captures psychological moments in everyday life in order to visualize the relationship between the artist and the art. The production of the film involves capturing live-action footage with a digital camera and a depth-sensor. The manipulation of the footage is done using After Effects, Premiere and Cinema 4D. This film is synesthetic in both its conception and realization.
