What happens when we allow ourselves to shift perspectives? When we defy established concepts such as “direction”? Perhaps, just perhaps, up is not up, and we need to look down.
Weightless is an invitation to create an alternative reality. To imagine a world where the rules we believe unbreakable are simply an option. We invite you to get lost in your thoughts and the satisfaction of defying our most established understandings.
a woman dances through a home much like a bird trapped in a cage while the viewer senses someone is watching, but does she now? and would she make these same moves if she did? Art d’Ecco’s song Nobody’s Home.
AMOR TI VIETA, taken from act II of the Italian opera Fedora. This piece was first performed back in 1898 in Milan, Italy. Fedora is an opera in three acts by Umberto Giordano to an Italian libretto by Arturo Colautti, based on the play Fédora by Victorien Sardou.
This music video is a stop motion animation portraying the story of this beautiful opera. KAJART and Shahrad Fredotti decided to focus on the most dramatic part of the story, portraying it in a very notable and artistic manner. In this scene Ipanov (the singer) declares his love for Fedora. He confesses to Fedora that it was he who had killed her husband, Count Vladimir.

Apprehension is the concept of fear, anxiety, and nervousness. That sick feeling you get in your stomach. This is what many feel through everyday life. A constant reminder of how our minds are the most powerful force in our body. This same feeling is revealed through visuals of beauty, calmness, and static posture. Inserts of uneasiness, things that represent what we fear, and tools of escapism will contrast with our current state of mind.
Dance video with a focus on questions around identity and its fluidity, meaning that culture and popular media create a define imprint on people’s unconsciousness and the way we see ourselves and others in the world
In this piece is a visualization of how people see others in “a package.” We all have our own bias and ideas around chosen cultures and ideas which are more likely have been formed through the influence of popular media, socio-political context and most importantly person’s surrounding. When a person says he is coming from from a particular country, people tent to immediately transfer their personal associations and ideas on to him/her and create an invisible “shell” of stigmas and stereotypes.
