BENEFIS INTERACTIVE WALL


Production: Float4

Creative/Art direction/design: Joanna Czadowska

Interactive design: Jean-Christophe Leclerc-Massé


The Benefis interactive wall is a permanent installation conceived by Float4, for the new Benefis Women’s and Children’s Center, in Great Falls, Montana. I was invited to provide creative direction and illustration for two video experiences. The first environment is a river filled with colourful trouts, that the user can attract. The second environment is a forest with falling leaves and pine cones, that can follow the user’s movement and silhouette. Both experiences play alternately, in the clinic’s waiting room, where kids can interact and play with the animations. It’s an intuitive, contemplative and comforting experience, that recalls Montana’s nature, engages kids as well as adults, and makes waiting moments much more fun!

QUANTUM TRAVEL


Production: Minute Moments

Direction/Design: Joanna Czadowska

Camera: Christian Pomerleau

Editing: Joanna Czadowska

Music: "God from the machine" by Santigold





"Quantum travel" is a mood piece, a glimpse into a mysterious ride through parallel worlds. It is inspired by Santigold's song "God from the machine". The accelerated whisper is reciting a poem by Philip Lamantia: "the feast of our hearts on fire, the nerves supplying spice, blood coursing a glow of insects, our eyes the dahlias of torrential ignition". The video combines cut-out animation, live footage, photos and graphics from the book "Tao of Physics"; diagrams of energy patterns and interacting particles. "Quantum travel" was part of the monthly event "Minute Moments", in March 2013, at Moment Factory.
