They built the widened coral reef

2019 | 2-channel video installation |

In ‘They built the widened coral reef’, different characters each exist in their own closed set, moving through a straight line, and even the foreground and background appear to slip past each other like parallel narratives. For example, one scene shows a restaurant owner accompanying the house pianist through a seemingly infinite industrial kitchen where chefs cut and chop, sending vegetables flying. Only when something disruptive enters the narrative, like a parasite, does disorientation arise.

As part of Mark Tholanders education at Jutland Art Academy, we were tasked with creating digital scenography for two different locations in his graduation work. It included several different aspects of the 3D pipeline such as  modelling, shading, matte painting & rendering.
