Round and Round II

The composition consists of 3D scanning and 3D modeling data. Round and round is 4 min HD CGI film about an imaginary affected area by ecological devastation focusing on entirely digital forensic operation inspired by video games and Anthropocene crisis. The main character is a sci-fi device suggesting a hybrid organism, scanning the terrain and a combat drone. Moreover, the video projection is presented along with two 3D printings sculptures placed onto marble pebbles. The sculptures are related to the other components allegorically, as they represent hybrid objects.
