Existential is a film composed of rendered depth data, shot live with an infrared camera. The depth data was colored in post-processing with video textures. The soundtrack was algorithmically time-stretched repeatedly to achieve an extreme lowering of resolution.
Audiences see the grainy figure of an anonymous traveler on London Underground. Bag over shoulder, the subject navigates winding tunnels as countless other anonymous travelers pass by.
Existential investigates the apparent emptiness of urban interactions. How are we affected by a void of identity? How can the previously-impossible angles of depth camera technology enrich our understanding?
