the light - the shade
3d-Animation (2014)
7 min 7 sec
idea and execution:  Susanne Wiegner
poem and voice: Robert Lax

"the light - the shade" is a poem by Robert Lax that plays with the contrasts and 
opposites light and shade, with bright and dark, black and white, red and blue. 
The film begins with a nighttime scenery in a city, moves into a room and starts 
watching the movement of the shadows on the wall. Finally the camera enters
 the screen of a laptop and goes deeper and deeper into the poem. The film 
becomes a journey through the realm of imagination, through spaces and 
pictures, through letters and words. In that way the minimal language of the 
poem is unfolded into unexpected pictures.
