A Snake in the Garden
'Alfred Cooperative Institute for Art and Culture'
6 minute loop
In the video a snake in the garden, i created a supernatural fantasy, a game where a number of stories combine into a new mythology.
While editing I weaved different symbols, rough digital animations in which I breathed life. Through these images I wish to portray a contemporary gaze on a timeless theme.
The main character in the video is the snake, the primal sin, a symbol of fear for many, but also of transformation and healing. In many scenarios the snake arrives to portend and be a warning that something bad is going to happen, or has already occured. The video moves at a meditative pace, as does the earth around the sun, slow but loyal.
The network of signs mixes and creates a new meaning: it is the story of the primal sin which repeats itself over and over again throughout history and embodies the source of human suffering.
