Duration: 3 Months (2017)
Team: Kris Madden, M.C. Smith
The juxtaposition of a metaphor, with what it represents, was explored via this project. This was mainly an exercise in representation and the use of sound and visuals, to create a unified whole that allows the user for suspension of disbelief.
Honeybees as a collective, composed of drone-like individuals, their reliance on order and structure was chosen as the visual. The audio spoke of technology and the collective future we face. The juxtaposition of the two created a powerful metaphor that spoke of the impending future, without directly referencing to the current conditions via visuals, in a powerful manner.
