"MEDIUM RARE is a stop motion short film made at CalArts in the Experimental Animation program. The short was mainly inspired by observations of behavior association, communication, and human adaptation to modern conformities. As aesthetics and functionality of human creations gained the main focus, the human figure became futile. Getting rid of living creatures helped to set the 'rules' and anchor on all the elements that people like to create, own and interact with."
limited and repetitive motion of the human body is often found in the
same form in different scenarios and extends itself into the
interacted object. The
sequence of shots in the film establishes
only the location and circumstances but carries a continuous sweep of
motion works well with this concept because every element has to be
thought, designed and built according to its function and wanted
look, while facing constraints like time and money, reflected in the
rushing modern society. Human touch affects every frame of a scaled down world and introduces unexpected subtleties in motion, unstable textures and lights, which open the door for surrealism and relate to the natural unstable human condition."
