contemplation is watching
6 min 8 sec
Idea and Animation: Susanne Wiegner
poem: Robert Lax
The film is based on a poem by Robert Lax and on his typical vertical typeface, that
he used to force the reader to slowness and contemplation. It is a short journey
through the realm of immagination and gives also some hints to Lax‘s biography.
He lived and worked in New York City when he experienced a moment outside of
time and space under a street light. Later on he was travelling with a small circus
before he moved to the Greek Islands, where he lived for 35 years.
