  •  “White Sugar” is a surreal film that narratively and graphically elaborates archival material in the public domain. I focused in particular on the female figure that is ubiquitous within this linguistic universe, as a sort of granite spokesman of a specific cultural model she apparently adheres without shadows and without uncertainty.
    I've isolated these female figurines, literally cutting them out of their context as paper dolls, and then I reassembled them into a new digital space made in 3d. The video revolves around the spooky theme of hypnosis and lucid dreaming, as a representation of western cultural model that is "white sugar", an artificial and addictive chemical pleasure, altering taste and perception. The graphics are best with anaglyph glasses.
