Director statement

“Horror vacui is the most ambitious project I ever completed. It’s the result of a long journey of personal growth in the technical-scientific and conceptual realms. It encapsulates years of personal research on mysticism, meditation, ecology, and eastern philosophies like Buddhism and Hinduism. These concepts are represented on screen using a series of computer graphics techniques, scientific instruments from geology studies, and aerial images and videos.”
