A HOUSE OR A MACHINE FOR LIVING IN
People meeting and talking. These are the voices overheard, weaving together their stories and deeper thoughts on house and home. The prevalence of shadows and dark planes hide more than they show. Slowy turning inwards and to the imagination, it revolves around the value of feeling at home.
In a place where a biblical landscape and western myths converge, there is a house, part biker hangout, part mountain farm. It welcomes all beings who traverse this inhospitable landscape. In “The Hostel“, past and future merge into one place, and deepest misery and recreation are not mutually exclusive.
NOTES ON MONSTROPEDIA
An animated archive of imaginary monsters written by a fictitious monsterologist in
Medieval Europe. This work depicts the habits of monsters, inspired by short phrases such as “Taste of Tears”, “Tamed Ferocity”, etc.
THE TESLA WORLD LIGHT
New York, 1905. Visionary inventor Nikola Tesla makes one final appeal to J.P. Morgan, his erstwhile benefactor. Inspired by real events, this electrifying short is a spectacular burst of image and sound that draws as much from the tradition of avant-garde cinema as it does from animated documentary.
A badger lies motionless on a local road. A police patrol approaches the body in the dark. They soon realise that the animal is not dead; the badger is dead drunk! When the police attempt to drag the creature off the road, he wakes up and things take a strange turn.
IMPOSSIBLE FIGURES AND OTHER STORIES II

On the windy and cloudy beach, Granny is praying, Mum is shouting, the sisters don’t care, Lucas is alone. Grandpa was a weird guy, now he’s dead.
“Everything” is an interactive experience where everything you see is a thing you can be, from animals to planets to galaxies and beyond. Everything is a procedural, AI-driven simulation of the systems of nature, seen from the points of view of everything in the universe. Everything is narrated by the late British American philosopher Alan Watts.
