Teaser for Kosmos, a music film by Oo.
Kosmos focuses on the building blocks of the digital and analog film image: pixels and grain. By manipulating the data of recordings of light patterns and the resulting granular textures, the images form a tactile crossbreed between analog and digital. The music establishes a dialogue between the acoustic and electronic voice. An audiovisual conversation of 9’36”, or symphony of 14400 abstract compressionist paintings, emerges.
