The endless needs of the mankind caused disruption. Disruption that destroys nature ignoring the fact that humans are a part of nature. Thus, as nature destroys... so will the mankind.

Take a step back...think for a moment...if you are the last man to stand on earth...how will you ensure your survival? Will you be satisfied to live in a desert full of thorns?

Even if you realize your mistakes at this point, there is no turning back. dreaming of a greener earth is possible, but...will this dream come true, if you ignore the causes of the climate changes?

This film/poem is inspired by my flowered journey in Japan in April 2014. Hanami means to watch and admire the flowers. It's what I did. Fujiyama is also a big symbol in Japanese culture, something beautiful and sacred. As a film/poem maker, I do all the stuff: I write the text, I compose and play the score and I shoot the images and make the movie. This video-poem is the translation of my feelings and thanks for this beauty, this peaceful happiness. Welcome on board and enjoy the trip like I did.

A strange debate of ideologies surfacing in the popular media sucks out reason and logicalities only to fill instead with confusion. Thus, rendering one's ideas, views and actions into a vague nothingness; so much so that the thought processes and the alternate realities, the dreams and the entire subconscious mind would delve into an augmented and of course distorted reality. The only way out of the oblivion, is by asking questions.
One must be analytical. It's just not about the whites, the blacks or the greys anymore; everything on every plane is refracted and is further flipped and turned over into a truncated capsule of truth.
It renders itself so intimidating that a woman wonders how to communicate when her language is so vague it is lost in misinterpretations and loss of emotions!
The dimension of the world around her is incomprehensible, her vulnerability is ever more unsettling as she embarks on a trip to a kaleidoscopic extravaganza! What follows, is a curious story of her emancipation as she sets off:
"Am I here? Am in your dream?"

Animation
General Category
As a piece of fine art I wasn't really sure where I was going to end up with it. I started by scanning a walk cycle of myself. Next, I printed the scans out on a 3D printer. Then I set up the camera on my phone to take time lapse pictures and in between the exposures I swapped out the prints of me to create something I've never seen before. A 3D printed time lapse/replacement animation. After I had shot everything out my window, in my backyard, and around my neighborhood, I began to bring the prints everywhere I went. Vermont, San Francisco, Austin, Schenectady just to name a few. I also scanned by daughters, Emma and Dara, and my dog, Mateo. Convincing teenage girls to get scanned and trying to get a dog to hold still were the hardest part of the project. So the film evolved into a record of my life. My friends, Morgan Mitchell and James Nelson, did the editing and the music, and Alex George, Zach Rubins, and Gib Peterson did the scanning and printing.
