suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
silke SIELER / Silja: It´s a short abstract movie dealing with nature and maritime creatures, metamorphosis and transformation – it connects art and science. With a strong emphasis on sound it is related to the idea of visual music. The Style is soft but clean, focussing on black & white.
