Bright Hour #7
A super short 35 mm film made with the young Portuguese talented movie director Filipe Penajoia and Director of Photography Duarte Domingos, transposing the immersive artificial experience of the Bright hour series.

Bright Hour is a representation “frame” of the sky, the magnanimous, immaterial an natural presence of light and immeasurable dimensions. The work seeks to assume itself as a geometric experience of space and time in which the visual perception of the work cannot be separated from the bodily presence.
This experience is directly associated with the minimalist and abstract form in which the work aims to be presented - a material format and an “immaterial” outcome designed by light and sound that transports the viewer between two-dimensional and three-dimensional relationships.
Several pieces and studies were developed from 2016 to 2020.
