Material Excess: Inferno2003

  • 2.3
MATERIAL EXCESS is a large-scale animated movie, which borrows its structure from Dante's Divine Comedy. The animation is for the most part created in a digital process related to the hand-made film tradition. In a photo-editing program, scans of various objects are placed on a digital image strip without regard for individual frames. These images are translated into video sequences and the result is an exploding jumble of images. By its very nature, the animation cannot directly illustrate the various bits of narration that appear in the soundtrack. The two things simply happen simultaneously. Many cultures have beliefs and related depictions about what happens to the soul after death. MATERIAL EXCESS provides an exhaustive tour of the various neighborhoods of the afterlife.
