“The images of myth are reflections of the spiritual potentialities of every one of us. Through contemplating these, we evoke their powers in our own lives”
– Joseph Campbell
My project engages in the exploration of traditional Norse mythology and the way these ancient myths, specifically the creation myth, explain the world beyond what we can see, hear, touch and feel. Through the means of animation and sound, I attempt to make the viewer reflect on the metaphysical aspect of traditional mythology. By creating a visual narrative through animation, but with no actual narration, I try to engage fully with the nature of the myths and evoke in the viewer some of the ‘spiritual potentialities’ that Joseph Campbell mentions; the result being an animated, and somewhat surreal, spiritual journey.
It was featured in 'The Name of the Game' exhibition in Greenwich, London in 2012.
