The concept began after I witnessed the advancement in technology surrounding robot humans -- robots who are programmed to emulate the human experience. I wanted to know what it would be like as a human emulating the robot experience. What I found to be true: robots do not swallow. The metaphor I've drawn from this experience has to do with the inability to escape oneself, regardless of the advancements of technology and our use of them.
I took this concept (and posted clip below) to Los Angeles and met up with Peter Borrud who had found my Fractal video and reached out to collaborate. He took me to breakfast and I shared my idea. He proceeded to create an entire space for a night in a warehouse where we filmed the official video.
Final product: currently in POST-PRODUCTION
