Dark matter is crawling from side to side. Materials morph into fluidity. A sound of seeping and dripping is heard, a grainy texture arises out of the dark. Hushed words creep into tranquillity. A collage of structures and materialities slowly pieces itself together, opens its pores, and flows into the ground.
Porous is an experimental animation short Film focussing on the ways natural materials can function as a filter. It investigates the visual potential of the filter at the edges of Ecoacoustics and Water Ecology. Porous uses filmic language and works with Artistic Research as Methodology. The process of the Film focuses on questioning and the seeking of answers. The findings along the way appear out of the darkness, trickle down from above. Filmmaking becomes the research tool, a way to manifest new knowledge and think through its formats.
