melting fields
3d-Animation (2018)
8 min 35 sec
Idea and Animation:  Susanne Wiegner

A single camera movement explores a catastrophic scenario that cannot be classified
neither spatially nor temporally. Is the flat overlooking the street just an illusion or the broken
rooms in the inhospitable landscape. The title "melting fields" refers to the melting ice
surfaces and glaciers as well as to an incipient loss of memory and orientation triggered by
certain processes in the human brain. How does our usual environment change when it is
only fragmentarily perceived and reminded. How can this feeling of complete loneliness and
despair in a fragmented (mental) world be visualized?
