This animated film primarily juxtaposes vibrant imagery of ancient art and object-making with modern technological devices and is predominantly drawn on 35-mm film. The visuals in this film include imagery of ancient material culture, such as cave paintings, ancient pottery and female fertility figures. All are rapidly shown alongside modern communication devices and weapons, such as missiles. Each individual category of material culture is rendered in modern, saturated colors, such as neon pink and rich cobalt blue, and is activated through replacement animation. With this method, the individual objects undulate, allowing the quintessential idea of the objects’ platonic forms to become juxtaposed with the distinct shapes of the individual pieces in the sequence.
