Late at night, there are animals minding their own business beside a lake. Some of them meet at the end, and then they drink tea and making sticky rice happily together ever since.

Vivian Vivas is an artist with a strong background in photography, video, performance, and film. Her work seeks to invite conversations about cultural and philosophical issues through experimental art forms and interrogate the role of art in culture. From extensive travel focused on indigenous cultures, rituals, and aesthetics, Vivian infuses visual anthropology, sound, movement, and performance in her work. An interest in photography that began in childhood has taken Vivian around the world as an artist. She has traveled in South America, India, and Africa, documenting indigenous communities to experience the roots of their culture and traditions and express them in an experimental way.
Vivian Vivas purpose of work is to welcome the unconscious mind to open a door where one can experience pure emotions behind images. She dreams that people cease to identify with races, borders, and the forms that we call personalities, and surrender to the power of Oneness of life. Her conceptual work is her art piece, which then directs the media she uses—from experimental film to performance and installation.
Trying to write this, without letting a tear go.
Sad is not even the appropriate word.
Can’t even be mad, I don’t even have time.
Looking back the only thing that makes me smile is your speech, your words, your fake-ness… so ..
No, I’m not mad my friend.
Filmmaker Sophia Stoller (SCREAMING SHAPES)
It was great to hear that it resonated with people and to hear people’s impressions. We were actually able to attend the festival the night our film was screened, so we also got feel the energy in the theater as people were watching it, which was exciting.
