Animated music clip, 3.36 min.
This issue of V–A–C Sreda online magazine publishes a work by the interdisciplinary artist Maria Aligozhina.
The musical clip Ritual, based on a composition by “DK im. Kupera”, is an experimental animated work that brings together six animation techniques: collage, plasticine, subject, rotoscope, stop-motion, and soil animation. Aligozhina creates a world and heroes, imagines their plasticity and physics, makes the non-living live. The format of the video can be seen as a game in terms of its precise choreography and direction of viewer experience within a single track.
“Where, where, where will this game take me? Perhaps I should stop, breathe, get out of it? Or breathe and dive in again?”
