Tectonica 1:14 2018

Tectonica/Arc is a short cyclical rotoscope animation exploring animated impressions of European history, violence, repetition, female sexuality and rebirth. All frames are hand drawn and based on a compilation of source footage shot by Léna Lewis-King and of experimental footage of 3D models explored in a virtual screen space. The soundtrack was made by Léna Lewis-King, adapted from a poem. 


Witness too too much in the dark of it all,

Footing on tectonic plates unsteady and

a mixture of giggles and harsh words emanate 

from that bedroom

Space-less and airless,

waiting for something that is formless in

an imagination of it's arrival

smoke spilling out from a tipped bottle
