Ell O'Farrell

Digital animation
Duration: 6 second loop

Ell O’Farrell’s animation, Ether, concerns the nature of memory and seeks to portray an unearthly space that can be accessed in the human mind. The sharp lines of ghostly figures floating across the soft earthly tones of this environment are intended to suggest a visual disconnection between a place and its visitors. The stillness of the landscape implies that this is a place existing outside the time of the memory, potentially persisting beyond the act of recollection. Ether forms part of an ongoing series of works exploring reminiscence through the medium of digital animation.
