One Minute to Heaven
Suite of seven one minute HD video animations
featuring creatures (animals and fruit) that have been levitated in research labs exploring gravity and resistance. The ambiguous space of heaven is from the perspective of and through the characters. As they act out scenarios referencing how they are used by society, we are left with the collision of culture and consciousness. The suite explores the relationship between suspension, perfection, virtuality, agency and grace.
The One Minute to Heaven series is part of a larger body of work on levitation, science theater and musical theater. The core of the project is a 9 minute HD video animation, "In the Levitation Lab, Your Love, Lifting Me".
