I.

Video (7'36"), 2014

I. is an experimental animation work that shows both sides of the same spectrum: the one traced between the forces that drive humanity's creative and scientific advancement.
Both creative and destructive at the same time, their polarity has torn asunder human reason and criteria throughout history. For example, when should our will over powers akin to those that give birth to small suns, be exercised? How should we distribute and dispose of nucleo-fissionable materials? When to harness their energetic potential and when should we deliver them as a world-decimating atomic bomb?

The answers are always interchangeable; our ethics only relative. That is why I. reminds us of all things important and how they affect the decisions we make in the name of our atoms. Lucid may their freedom be!
