The Life of Lines
TO LIVE, EVERY BEING MUST PUT OUT A LINE,
AND IN LIFE, THESE LINES TANGLE WITH ONE ANOTHER
The Life of Lines is a feature length creative documentary exploring some of the central assumptions of contemporary culture and highlighting metaphors that can help us re-imagine our relationship to the rest of the living world. It features interviews with leading scientists and draws from the work of anthropologist Tim Ingold to unfold a manifesto for a world beyond dualities. In times of polarization, divisions, climate emergency and the 6th mass extinction, the film points towards possibilities for our shared futures.
These are some of the drawings and animation tests developed in collaboration with Michelle Kranot. These are hand-painted animations that that use a playful and imaginative approach to enliven the content. They are sensitive and humorist at times. The visual and sonic language has ample contemplative space.
An algorithm developed by Diego Galafassi specifically to embody ideas of the project into a cinematic form.
