Construct

Australia, 1996 (MIFF 1997, Animation)

Director: Michelle Burns

Construct is about texture. It is a short and intense abstract film that takes us through the layers of a human body and back again in the man made world. The film uses chalk pastels, rendered photographs and found objects to compare and delineate each visual sensation after the next. A quick, palpitating, sensual experience.
