21.10.13 - Phaethon Research - Humbling Force by Jessica Lee
This short film titled "Humble Force" by Jessica Lee, who usually works in textiles creating one of a kind silk pieces, is inspired by the sea, and shows in the middle section of the film a female figure falling/swimming through the water surrounded by different shades of fabric
It really brought up a lot of connections with my passage i've chosen from Phaethon.
In my head i see a really slow, figure falling through space.
The way the film is put together showing the figure slowly swimming through the water gets a sense across perfectly.
Also the use of the shades of blues and greens are exactly the sort of ideas i had in my head, its embodies a lot of the things i wanted to look at but in a film state rather than painting.
Ive taken some sneaky screen shots of some of the specific parts of the film that i was drawn to.
I think when things are shown underwater they get that erethral, ominous sense to them that really associates with the sinister thought of falling through space.
