Le Cube partner/CD Santiago Oddis captures the “intricate dance that unfolds between souls” in this lyrical character work which serves as the hero film for an exhibition featuring 13 graphic artists at Final Frontier’s Silk Gallery in Madrid.
Santiago Oddis: “I lost myself thinking about all my past relationships and how often they have had their own structure: good, bad, loving, boring, passive, aggressive, energetic, and so on. Still, I found all of them have this common thread, a balancing of emotions.
“I wanted to play with this animation by using fragments of situations that can both evoke the subject and escape the traditional storytelling format.”
“I was not trying to send a specific message about love or balance but rather looking for people to get their own meaning from it, just like a good song would do. With that idea in mind, I wanted to play with this animation by using fragments of situations that can both evoke the subject and escape the traditional storytelling format.
“The film serves as the foundation and inspiration for the Love & Balance exhibition exploring the delicate equilibrium between tenderness and strength. Opening to coincide with Madrid Pride week, the exhibition features pieces by artists with a background in animation and working at the intersection of the commercial and the artistic, visualizing their unique interpretations of the challenges inherent in finding symmetry in love.”
